So, I’m half Greek and half Portuguese. I mostly identify with the Greek side of my heritage, because I am Orthodox, I speak Greek and my mother was born there. I am the President of the Hellenic Student Organization on my campus. I started the organization. Well, since it’s the end of the year, we have to renew our charter with the school. So, I sat for nearly two hours in a small room waiting for my turn. I finally get to go up and discuss my club’s purpose which is to share our Hellenic culture with the campus community. And where they’d asked other clubs questions about their future events and stuff (which I was asked as well), one of the people interviewing me asked me why we hadn’t had a screening of My Big Fat Greek Wedding yet. I told her it was because of movie rights issues. But in the back of my mind, as much as I love the film, I think it perpetuates stereotypes of Greeks as loud, obnoxious, superstitious immigrants. One of the other people asked me if we all say “Bundt” like they do in the movie. I joked around saying that some of my members have an accent. But they kept badgering me with stupid questions like “Do you really spit on people?” and only now has it really irked me. So, yeah, rant over. And as much a I have “white privilege” as a European culture, I sometimes have deal with ignorant bullshit, too because I’m still very close to my cultural roots.
