2907Re: A note on 'Self-Definition'
- May 29, 2007It seems then that you object to the
notion that others would pass someone.
There is, I would imagine, a sense of a loss of

I cannot "pass" for Asian.
My features are not prominent enough.

I wouldn't use the word "passing" for what you're talking about.

It seems like you're describing other people 'labeling'
you or making 'assumptions' about your race/ethnicity.
