I personally do not associate the terms brotha and sistah with any specific ethnicity, just a culture. I bring this up, because not too long ago an older Hispanic male addressed me as sister during a conversation. I can recall during our in-depth conversation, about Fresno and the ways of society, a few stares from other people (Black, Asian, and Mexican). At first we took it as they heard our conversation and had an opinion. However, when he addressed them and invited them into our conversation they turned their backs or shook their heads.
Real talk what do you all make of this? How do you feel about these terms? Havre you ever found yourself in a similar situation? How did address it, if at all?
