ANSWERS: 52
  • At work I got called a f***in white cracker for telling an obviously angry woman to have a great evening. That's nothing compared to what she was saying to her 2 year old kid...
  • Many times.
  • People have asked me what nationality i am, and when i tell them im russian they say 'wow, you dont act like one'.. whatever that means :-/

  • Yes they have, on quite a few occasions. Funny that
  • Not about me, but about others - well, I live in Australia. People here (Perth in particular) think it's justified to be racist towards Australian Aborigines. Also, many also feel that they're better in every way than 'Asians' (people from East Asian countries) and Arabs (Pakistanis, Persians, Afghans and the like also get falsely attributed as Arabs). Anti-Indian sentiment is at an all time high, and almost everybody's patriotic. It's disgusting, I have to live in this ignorance.
  • Yes - i was walking past some black people - didn't say a thing - and they started shouting abuse and saying stuff like white trash and bird poo and dodgy stuff like that - i just kept walking coz im not racist. i'd probably joke about racism but id never say it in a chat or tto offend!
  • OH, YES! "Some of my best friends are green......" "I had some "green friends" in my dorm." "It can't be easy being green, at least that what Kermit thinks!" Like that wimpy little frog speaks for all of us folks of alternate coloring! (NO POINTS please! Give them to the folks who have had to cope with this for real! I'll just monster on despite the challenges!)
  • Sexist yes, racist no. There is no right or wrong answer here since it is a yes or no question. If anyone cannot accept that the answer is "no", move along, no need to rate this down.
  • to me? maybe behind my back and this english person said stop eating that indian c**p to my friend

  • Yes. I live in the southern United States. Someone says something racist to me, though usually not about me, every single day. It's surprising to me how many people assume that because I am white that I want to hear or agree with their racist rhetoric. One of the saddest parts is that half the time they don't realize or don't think they are being racist at all. They think they are being open minded by saying things like, "She's so nice... for a black lady."
  • Jew stuff and the like, but usually I think Jew jokes are funny myself. Also, somebody called me an "Eye-tie" once, referencing my Italian heritage. I don't know how he knew, but whatever.
  • Yes, as a white Scottish person I generally get nasty comments from (a tiny minority of) people in England. No doubt they don't see anything wrong with it. When I worked in Africa I got looked down on for being white a few times. Overall I have done very well, but this was certainly enough to give me an idea of what it feels like. As a result, I will never knowingly put somebody down for their race or ethnicity.
  • no, and i dunno why, they laugh at me, but don't say anything racist to me...
  • Yes. A few instances of downright hostile racist name-calling, but many more instances of "You speak so well for an Aborigine", or "Oh, I don't think of you as one of them". That, and people telling racist jokes, then saying, "Oh, you don't mind do you?" People *eyeroll*
  • not to me, but to my friend. She is Chinnese, so some jerk called her a chiger (chinnese n****). I was even offended. It discuseted me
  • people are mean like that
  • Yeah. One time I got stopped by a police officer, and he asked me if I had ever been arrested before (I hadn't been doing anything wrong). I told him no, and he acted offended, and asked me "Ya wanna bet?" at which time I threw my ID into his lap, and told him to call it in if he didn't believe me. Not only did he find out that I have never been in trouble, he found out that I was good friends with about 22 of his collegues, as well as his boss, the Police Chief. Needless to say he experienced early retirement.
  • Many times, to me ["You white people..."] and about my friends and in laws [Alaska Natives- boy, do I like to get into that one- idiots]. My philosophy: There are plenty of reasons to dislike you. I don't need color as one. My kids are 1/2 & 1/2... I'm of the opinion that mixed babies are usually prettier than pure 1 color. DISTURBING TV NEWS: The clan and other hate groups are growing- they said illegals and border issues....
  • Someone once called me a white trash bitch. We came from the same place so I overlooked it because I knew he was no better than me and if he thought I was white trash then he was the same.
  • Yes, and I find it very disturbing.
  • My mother-in-law doesn't realize she's a racist. One of her daughters (who's white) married a black man and he's infertile, so they're going to go for artificial insemination with a black donor. My mother-in-law is really against this, and is always saying stuff like, "why can't they choose a white donor? Don't they want a normal looking baby?" Her other daughter is an unwed mother with a half black little baby boy. My mother-in-law tells people "Don't worry, he doesn't really look black. He could pass for just being a little dark skinned." My husband begs me not to confront her about it, but it really makes me mad.
  • Yes and I can't believe it. On myspace, on three separate occasions, three separate people called me...the "n" word. By the way, I am white. I don't why they called me that, but it happened... Also, at my school too. All of the gangsta's(who happen to be white) say the "n" word all the time to each other.
  • ALL the time. I live in Virginia (of course, the south), the southwest area, but alot of people think if you're from the south, then you're generally racist, and that is just a big stereotype that doesn't make sense to me? Just because of what all (or most) of our ancestors did 150+ years ago, we get the blame towards it, and we have to suffer for something we didn't do, or have any control what so ever of. It's asinine in every respect.
  • Yeah, who cares..fug 'em.
  • On the internet yes, not yet in real life.
  • Sure! Many times! But like I've said before, it's not what is said, it's the spirit in which it's said that creates the offense! Someone can say anything to me and I will never be offended, because I can feel their "vibe" Others don't have to say much at all to make my skin crawl.
  • Yeah, a Malaysian guy I worked with once described caucasians as "dirty, hairy, smelly barbarians a couple rungs below us on the evolutionary ladder". He moved to Australia because the non-dirty, non-hairy, non-smelly, civilised folk a couple of rungs above us on the evolutionary ladder had screwed up his country... Go figure!
  • Oh yes... When I tell people that I love the south, people just ASSUME i'm a white-trash/ red-neck/ what-ever BEFORE asking me why... (I love the south due to the weather, by the way.) Dispite the times...some people will STILL have a racist myth imprinted on their brains.....so sad.
  • All through high school. I am a normal white guy and walking into the locker room was equivalent to requesting a beating. Cracker, Whity, you name it they said. If I had to use the bathroom at school I would call my mother to pick me up and take me to the facilities at her workplace. That's just one example off the top of my head. YES, white people are discriminated against all the time.
  • I'm in India and never been to America so luckily no.
  • Yes, I am 16 years of age and recently attended a conference where I identified covert acts of racism towards my school which brought about 12 students. The facts were we were Maori (New Zealand), in a 300 person conference with fair skinned people. Our difference in appearance to pakeha (white people *sorry if this is an offensive word*) is having darker skin eg. like islanders, and many maori are usually associated with trouble, gangs, etc. just as manny african americans are portrayed in the movie and the music industry. Also many Maori's get a moko, which is basically a special tattoo which is tattooed onto the face as a sign of respect from others and being a warrior (this specific one is just tradition and does not really apply to everyone in our time and generation, but is rather sacred), we also have a traditional dance called the haka which is used to intimidate the opposition, this is usually used by the All Blacks (the worlds number 1 rugby team, they're from NZ). Anyway at this conference a boy walked upto my Maori friend and due to his colour just said "so what do you rap?", my friend said "excuse me" all because if his darker skin colour.Also in the same day a random white girl approached my friend and said "Are you from south Auckland?", south auckland is basically what you would identify as the broncs (sorry for the incorrect spelling). When she is actually quite rich from a great background, south auckland is also associated with gangs, drugs and all the other bad things. Also in the same day, the event holders thought it would be funny to have a haka competition, where they basically just mocked our national dance, couldn't pronounce the words and laughed the whole time. when an actual Maori (from our school, of course) actually did go up and show them his tribe haka, they laughed to death and said he looked like an idiot. Later that day 2 girls went to one of the pakeha competors and said wow *name* you were so good, he replied nah *blah blah*, then they said nah your like a real maori now, all you have to do is paint a stupid moko thing on your face, the other girl added saying nah that'll just look stupid. Lastly there was another act but I was asked not to tell anyone because it was very upsetting to the receiver. The big shock for this is the event was a 2 day event, so more was endured throughout the whole thing. The even bigger shock was that it was a christian event. So basically it was a real eye opener that people can be really cruel even at our age and in our supposedly multiculturally accepted country. Instead people just switch their open acts of racism to covert racism in order to appear politically correct and that is better I suppose rather then violent acts, but still my question I would like to propose, which would hopefully provoke some tiny inkling of thought is.....if we turned ourselves inside out, how am I different to you????
  • Yeah, let's see, I've been called: Chink Yellow Ching Chong Buckahiya etc.
  • back in high school i was sent on a "scared straight" tour of the mississippi state penitentiary. i was the only white guy on the bus and had a few commemts directed towards me regarding the color of my skin ;) lol! i admit i was pretty scared but i also understood where they were coming from. it was definitely a learning experience ;)
  • I was called a "honkey" in college one time by a black guy who didn't realize it was even a racist term. I got real mad, said some things out of anger that I probably shouldn't have said (I even dropped the N word I was so upset). He, and the other 3 blacks and one white guy with him, looked real nervous and scared, and just left. I was aproached a few days later by one of the LARGER black men on campus of days later and he asked me about what happened. when I told him my side of the story, he laughted and said that is basically what he had heard and apologized to me on behalf of the guy who call me honkey, saying that the "kid" didn't know any better and that I wouldn't have to worry about him insulting me again. I guess I got a rep on campus with the black crowd as the angry white guy.
  • Of course.Who hasn't heard stupid things before?
  • No, no one has said anything racist to me, although I live a multiracial country. However highly sensitive racist remarks are common despite our country having Sedition Act to deter our people from doing us.
  • Yes, there was this complete racist douche-bag that everyone was afraid of in early high school. His favorite victims were black and Asian people. I was new and after two weeks of listening to him dishing out crap to other people, I finally snapped when he wouldn't leave this Japanese girl alone. She didn't even stand up for herself so I dragged him out of the class, broke his jaw, broke his nose and took him up to the nurse. His racist coward friends didn't even come to rescue him when he cried. He told the nurse that he had fallen down steps, because the dick knew why he had been punished. Made no difference though coz some students told the truth anyway, and both he and I got suspended for 6 weeks. It was worth it though. My parents felt I did nothing wrong so didn't tell me off or anything. Now he and his mates watch what they say. I can't stand racism, against any race. If I hear anyone being racist (without joking) I feel like they're challenging me.
  • For being white, I don't recall. For being of Polish descent, yes. I've been called a polack on a number of occasions. Half the time the bastards thought that that's what you're sopposed to call someone of my descent (the correct term is Pole). As I am American, I don't feel all that bad because of it, but I do raise hell, just because I can lol I really don't give a fuck. I set them straight though, no one said it twice to me.
  • yes, a lot of white people when i was a child. now that im all grown up. i dare any white person to come up to me and make a racist remark right at my face.
  • I'm actually a mix of a bunch of different races. My family is DEFINATELY not racist, as they slept with every different groups! But my skin is a little tanned, and I'm often confused for latin oddly enough. Same with my mom. I've had many latins come up to me and try to speak to me in Spanish, then look surprise when I tell them I don't speak spanish. I once remember when I was working as a Bus Boy, a woman asking me "What country are you from?". I answered "Massachusetts" real quick, cause I actually wasn't fully paying attention. She then actually asked again, putting empathist on 'country', and a little louder, and thats when it clicked, and answered "America." I'm not sure if it was racist or not, but it was prejudice.
  • Yes, I have to say out of all the things that has ever been said this one was the best. I use to date this cape verdean kid he had this friend who i didn't know, well this kid decided to get in my car and he was sittin there and he comes out of his mouth with i wish i was white like you, i said do you i said why is that he said cuz look what you got, you you got it all you got a nice car, nice clothes, nice jewerly i wish i was white like you, now mind you the jewerly i had on was custom real silver fake diamonds, the car i was making payment on, and the clothes i just know how to dress, so he says you white people got it all. so i said to him let me explain something to you everything you see right now i worked for my mommy an daddy didn't hand it too me so f##k off with your whole im black and don't have s##t bulls##t, i don't have what i have cuz it was handed to me i worked for everything i got and it wasn't handed to me cuz im white so get over it. so after that he then says to me you know i could rob you right, i said really he said yeh i got a knife in my pocket i said well do you now i said i have one too so lets see who is bigger, i said so now get your ignorant black ass out of my car before i physically remove you and run your ass over. I am not a racist person at all but i think that drew the line for me and i hate people who sterotype others.
  • Ive been called ni**er lover.
  • Oh yes! I nocked cold his ass, too.
  • Yep but its not considered racist because I'm white.
  • I've been discriminated against for having German blood (German c*nt, Nazi, Baby hitler) I also come from a Jewish family, and have been *complimented* with "You're not like most Jews. You're not that much of a wanker." Gee, Thanks. Lol.
  • In all of my many years on this planet, I can't recall of anyone ever saying anything racist to me. I'm not racist and people know that so they don't make racist remarks to me. Racism is ugly and racists are bullies. Me and bullies don't get along well at all.
  • Playfully, yes.
  • Yes, one day on the bus me and some black friends were talking about different ethnicities we had in our family tree. When some white boy jumps in to say, "Oh, I have blacks in my family tree, and they're still hanging up there." That was the 1st time I had heard that "joke" but I have since learned that its all over the internet.
