Anyone else think the description for this is really ridiculous? It feels like it was written 200 years ago, not in a world where most people talk to people of all races every day of their lives (unless they\'re hillbillies).
\"Oh, half is offensive so we\'re going to say \"mixed ancestry\"\" after you talk about Going Native? Sure.
So... shouldn't all the examples of But Not Too Foreign who are simply people of mixed-race count for this trope as well? Just figured I'd check before adding examples.
But Not Too Foreign is a subtrope of Mixed Ancestry, so no, don't list them on both.
What's with the "Religion" example? That doesn't sound right. A gentile is someone who is not Jewish, end of story. Also, what Bible is the original poster talking about? The whole thing is problematic.
"Frank Hopkins from Hidalgo is a half Native American, and has a foot in both cultures."
what's the other half? i'm guessing it's white american?
Yeah, um... pulling that until somebody rewrites it to make sense.
EDIT: Having renamed the wick on that, I can now confirm he's half-white. Restoring.
