In a Lyft yesterday

Lyft guy: your accent, where is it from?

Me: I’m from NZ.

Lyft: Cool! The colour of your skin is very nice.

Me: ...Uh, well I’m Indian...

Lyft: like Native American?!

Me: Uhhhh, no.

Watching the Olympics with my roommate.

Roomie: The Japanese Rugby team has a lot of non-Japanese people in it!

Me: Well they’d be citizens, but I’m guessing you mean the Pacific Islanders? They’re Fijian!

Roomie: Pacific Islanders? No! They’re black!

Me: WUT? Those things are not mutually exclusive...
