I was watching some Olympics re-runs the other day.
They were handing out medals to the ladies relay teams.
It was something like, the Aussies, the Dutch and the Americans.
Me: Are they twins?
Two of the girls on the Dutch team.
They look really similar.
[the middle ones...quite similar lah...]
A close up quickly revealed no.
No, they are not twins.
Not at all.
Me: Oh. No. They do look similar though. From a distance.
And looked at the other teams.
Me: They all do..?
Slowly I realised what I was saying.
All the white girls "basically look the same".
I did that racist thing to my own race.
Do I really see that few white faces that I can no longer differentiate between them..?
Because that is quite hardcore.
And a bit weird.
