Good advice.
As to the question “Did I think of her subconsciously as Asian and that is why I selected the yellow tape for her bike?”
I’ll bet, since she is Asian, you consciously thought of her as Asian. There is nothing wrong with that. And I would also bet differentiating the tape based on nationality never crossed your mind.
I guess it helped you understand her sensitivity about it though. I am glad she seems better adjusted now.
Great job on this article! I hope it places high. It's crazy how skin color has always been such an issue.
Great true story! We can be insensitive to race at times and thankfully we are able to correct it.
