If you could change your race for just 1 day what would you choose? And if you could, would you want it to be permanent?
I ask this, because as a POC it wonders into my brain every so often.

No I wouldn't want to. Maybe for research purposes only.

I'd probably choose Indian but wouldn't want it to be permanent because there are cultures, customs, language, thinking processes, etc that I'm not used to and don't have.

Like the other person said I would do it for research only, I would like to try out being white for a day to really see what it's like. But my blackness is powerful and I wouldnt give that up.

Haha I guess I'm the self loathing loner then… I'm black and white, and I would change my race to be probabaly more mixed, I absolutely loathe it when I tell someone I'm mixed race, and then they just call me black. I am not just black, I honestly don't identify with either races, I prefer being "other" and I feel being mixed with more things people wouldn't call me just black. So I would probabaly choose to have some Asian mixed in, they tend to be smaller and I really like their features.

I would be Asian because I think Asians are prettier and white guys tend to like them. I would absolutely want it to be permanent, there's not really anything good about being black

Definitely white. Being a half Asian/white hybrid child is awful, there's bullying from both races and there's no support for mixed race children. And, contrary to popular belief, being Asian/white is not necessarily a good look at all (at least on me, I know lots of other mixed people are absolutely gorgeous). But yeah, definitely white.

I see you as the rabbit hole,
Bound to take me places I have never been.
I see you as a new kind of church,
Founded to proclaim that we are not sin.

Why don't you like being called black?


Will you still love me when I've got nothing but my aching soul?

A wei? What's is that? I'm not familiar with that.
And to answer your question it's the same reason I wouldn't like being called white…
Kinda obvious.
