“黄头发”不是“yellow hair”,乱说就是歧视老外!那该怎么说呢?

“黄头发”不是“yellow hair”,乱说就是歧视老外!那该怎么说呢?

“黄头发”用英语怎么说?

相信很多同学的第一反应可能会是

“yellow hair”

但这种说法是不正确的

“yellow hair”为什么是错的?

yellow这个颜色词在英语文化中是容易造成歧视感的,
比如你会发现美国人称呼黑人为black,白人叫white,
但称呼黄种人不用yellow people!

虽然我们常说亚洲人是黄种人,但是不可以用yellow来描述黄种
如果看到一个黄种人,直接叫人家“yellow”,这里就有种族歧视的意思,
可以用Asian(亚洲人)来表达出这个意思。

所以在形容“黄头发”的时候,千万不要说“yellow hair”,
地道的表达是blonde hair/sandy hair.

例:

She has blonde hair.

她有一头金发。

She has fair skin and sandy hair.

她有着白皙的皮肤和淡茶色的头发。

“黄头发”的地道英语表达学会了
