Have you personally experienced racism?

Posted by: xhammy

Note that I don't mean saw it on TV or the internet, or even hearing a racist joke. Hardcore racism, people legitimately using racial slurs offensively not jokingly with their friends. Comment your experience.

I think someone was avoiding someone because of race but not directly attacking them.

Does it count if it was a joke?

@imabench Huh? GAP isn't already the most white store you can think of?

@Reece. Yes it counts even if it is a joke.

This girl at school once asked me where I was from, to which I replied 'here' to which she said 'no you're not'. Does that count?

I think that this is a good legitimate poll, my best maybe.

@BblackkBbirdd That is beginning to pass off as racism in some circles ...

Because it is racism.

Its racism to tell someone that they aren't from here?

Well they're assuming one isn't from a certain country due to their ethnic background.

If I was in Somalia and someone called me out as "not being from there", I don't see that as being racist. Just seems observant is all.

Plus I didn't see any indication that race was a factor in Blackbirds example. Could have been the accent he was using. Clothes he was wearing. Anything really.

No but I hate it when black people get mad because I call them niggers. That's just what they are right? I mean, they're black (negro, if you will) so why is it so upsetting to be called a nigger? Just embrace that nigger feeling and eat some water melons, drink some cool aid, or whatever black people do these days..
