Journeyed there and back again
Don't be embarrassed about that. Be embarrassed that Americans have asked whether people drive cars, keep dogs as pets, or are black in England
(do you guys have mailboxes? do you have proper mailslots? do you drive everywhere? does everyone live on farms? is everyone a Christian? you get british shows no way!!)
on the black bit, i received equally ignorant questions, in both directions from English, Koreans, French and Germans. I am used to living in areas 60% black, 20% minimum so if I didn't know better I may have spent a few days in lancashire, not seeing any, and stupidly asked. but I do know better (and im not ignorant, and I didn' t notice, and I didn't care) I know the pop there is 0.5%. that reminds me of living in blanco texas, a racist coworker introduced me to a guy named robert, as "the whole counties black population" . I hated that racist coworker.
