If you saw a nanny in this BBC interview, what does that say about you? (For the record: My first thought actually was that the woman was a nanny, but it had nothing to do with her race. I was more biased by her physical posturing, trying to be as small as she could in the frame, which seemed deferential and didn’t immediately strike me as the behavior of a wife/mother. But then I noticed that the kids looked biracial, and I remembered from my years growing up in Asia how different the culture is and how expectations of women tend to be quite different than they are in the west. By the end of my second viewing, I decided the woman was likely the kids’ mom.)
