I was wondering since we had a topic on the word "nigga" and it got such a stong response, has anybody been the on the recieving end of racism? My friend who is a female and is white , has a brother that just came back home and hes racist as hell he hates me. Skinned head and all, he even thinks the holocaust never happened, he says all those bodies were Germans. I really hate that people are like this in this day of age. mad.gif

Yes I have. Some of the things I have experienced are not things I would want to discuss on an open forum but I think I've seen the worst of it. I was shot at once ermm.gif My parents chose some very interesting places to live. One town we moved to, my mother was the first black nurse in their hospital. I don't know if they were in denial or if they were more concerned about building a life for themselves that they ignored it.

Why does your friends brother hate you? Are you black? Latin? Jewish?

When I was in high school, there was a career fair at the gym, so I skipped class and went to it. Back then I was interested in a career in the Navy, and so I talk with the military recruiter. He gives me an appointment, and he starts bombarding me with Navy propaganda. wacko.gif It turns out that he kept perpetuating that 75% of the Navy are Filipinos, and hence thought I was dumb enough to actually believe that hype. I was the "ideal" high school graduate.....so to speak, just cuz I am a Filipina. ermm.gif

note: the main reason why there are a lot of Filipinos in the Navy is because they want U.S. citizenship, NOT to fight for this ungrateful country (emphasis on the first syllable).

I grew up in Penrith, which was (back in the early 90's) the very western suburb of Sydney as you could get. All my friends came from various ethnic groups (mostly aboriginal, African, and Italian) and we were all friends until mid high school when people... i dunno how you put it but my friends basically came to despise one another. i had to choose which group of friends i liked the most and it was horrible.

now i live in melbourne and nothing much has changed, i see people attacking each other because of their race and it sucks because i've seen how it can ruin friendships. i don't dig racism, and i can't understand how people can't respect each other's values.

with her feet flyin up in the air
Singing hey diddle diddle with a kitty in the middle
I was swingin like I didn't care
So I took a big chance at the high school dance
With a misses who was ready to play
Wasn't me she was foolin cause she knew what she was doin
when she told me how to walk this way...

I have been the butt of racist remarks from Mexicans. You want to know what is scary I am part Mexican and dealing with this shit is disgusting. Some chicanos take it upon themselves to degrade me in spanish not knowing that I speak spanish fluently. Ignorant and insecure.

There's something very wrong when people try to justify their use of a word this hateful or say they don't care who is offended whent hey use it...but you want to call me hypocrite. Get real! It's hypocrisy to pretend you care about racial relations in this country and then try to justify using a word that carries so much racial hatred.-Moremi

I understand the anger and bitterness Sarah. Growing up, it seemed like my brother and I had to fight everyday. We were either being harassed by the white kids for being black, or the black kids for being African. One incident that has stayed with me happened in middle school. I was sitting at my desk and the desks in front of me belonged to a white girl and a white boy. The white boy turns around and looks at me with disgust - like he was looking at a piece of shit. He says, "You are sooo black. You're so ugly." The girl laughs and says, "That's not nice." And my teacher who heard everything, just looks at me and does nothing. I have too many memories like that.

I really loathe the stereotype that Southeast Asian women (Filipinas included too) are pliant and great for subjugating. (This also applies to all Asian women.) Or they assume that we're prostitutes or housemaids.

Racism is bad enough from the outside, but within the ethnic group? That's just as bad! cry.gif

i am a black female and yes unfortunately i have been faced with racism. There are some stores that i walk where people just stare or follow me around thinking i'm going to steal something it sucks concidering that i live in toronto and we're "multicultural." At my school there are these certain group of guys that make fun of asians. (if you guys are aware toronto has been hit with SARS and since the most cases of SARS were from asian countries like china and korea). anyway these certain group of guys wrote on the school wall Stupid Asians Ruining or School. i find these people absolutely disgusting especially at my school because its and artsy and a very diverse school. it is sad that in North America 2003 in an age of "civilization" "acceptance" and "development" there are still racist and prejudice people that continue to rome around in our society.
