    No it's not ok. Unfortunately for Rachel Malison it's how the world perceives you, FACT.

    I first and foremost just consider myself Jamaican however, the Jamaican community in England will class me as Indo Jamaican, or when they want to be insulting they call me coolie. Whites in England just think I'm Indian. So it's how the world perceives you. I sure as f/k ain't gonna walk around town in a sandwich board proclaiming my ethnicity, f/k that.

    The judges (Kappa Alpha Psi) must have perceived her as AA?
