It’s been a long time since I last posted a travel story that had to do with race, but three incidents this past weekend inspired me to write this post.
Random woman on the street (directed at me): “Ohayou!”
Incident #2 (while waiting at a T stop):
Man: “Can I catch a train here to go to Boston College?”
Me: “I think so.”
Man: “Thanks. Are you a student at MIT?”
We were not near MIT’s campus.
Not related to me being Asian, but as I boarded the plane at Boston Logan to leave, the gate agent said loudly, “First class only. We are boarding first class only”, clearly directed at the whoever was behind me. I turned around and saw two black women.
