Junot Díaz “How to Date a Browngirl, Whitegirl, or Halfie”
When I first saw the title of this piece it was easy for me to guess what it would be about. However, the perspective it is taken from is diffrent than I would have thought. The narrator is Dominican and lives in a neighborhood with lower socioeconomic people. He talks about the government cheese, which hints at his family's economic status. The way he described the girls was very stereotypical. I found it very interesting how he described how to act towards the girl's parents and to the girls themselves.
