Here's my problem. I'm a Cuban female, but according to other kids, I don't look like a "steriotypical Hispanic". Actually, I'm only half - my mom is white. I am getting bigotry from white kids when I mention that I will apply to colleges as a Hispanic. It's happened now several times where people really challenge whether it's fair that I should get an advantage because I don't look Hispanic. Or apparently act like one -- whatever that means.
How would you respond? It really offends me on a couple of different levels. I would appreciate some good advice.
