Summary
""Where do you come from?"" When Vijay Agnew first immigrated to Canada people would often ask her ""Where do you come from?"" She thought it a simple, straightforward question, and would answer in the same simple, straightforward manner, by telling them where she had been born and where she grew up. But over the years she learned that many so-called third-world people resent being asked this question, because it implies that having a different skin colour (which is what usually prompts the question) makes a person an outsider and not really Canadian.
