I've had really bad experiences when I have traveled when it comes to racism. Happened in Europe and southern US. Some are subconscious and people don't know they're doing it (eg. Greeting me with "Konichiwa" or telling me where the local Chinese buffet is) to blatant physical interactions (eg. People deliberately walking into me and staring me down).
My DFH is also Caucasian. We've been together 10 years and grew up together (same culture, values etc). Our families are quite different yet we are ALWAYS perceived as the "yellow fever" couple. In turn, we get the same treatment.
I've never been to Cancun or even Mexico before. For those of you ladies who have traveled here, how were you received when you were there? Was service any better/worse than you anticipated? I've looked at some links of local Cancun photographers and a lot of the photos they chose to display in their portfolios are quite ... well "monochromatic". I am thinking of bringing my own photographer who is also based out of Toronto and whose portfolio reflects a diverse client base.
Racism is everywhere, I'm just hoping it won't be as bad as my past experiences.
Thanks in advance!
