Biggest culture shock for me when I moved to a white town. My former friend Surbhi and I just held our breaths when I heard this the first time
Someone calling a white person ‘wonder bread’ isn’t racist. It’s rude, but it’s not racist. Wonder bread as an offensive term has no weight, no meaning. It’s just something to push your buttons. Using the N-word is racist - it has meaning and weight and brings up a past that should’ve never happened. The comparison between rude and racist is like squares and rectangles - every square is a rectangle, but not every rectangle is a square. Every racist comment you hear is rude, but not every rude comment you hear is racist.

“Preference is all that truly matters and it’s an individual choice. The pressure to date Native or non-Native shouldn’t be external, it should be internal. It’s everyone’s prerogative to act accordingly. Do you feel a calling to continue your bloodline, to keep the culture and tradition more intact? Act accordingly and be true to your search for love.” Lawrence Santiago
Some of my interviews get used over and over again - this one was first for Urban Native Magazine, and then for CBC Aboriginal, and now for my second book with Annick Press on Urban Native Millenials. Santiago was a gem of an interview, and I’m glad to get his POV across to multiple audiences!
