No. If they're being racist clowns or bigoted ***** then I let them now how stupid they sound regardless if they're my friends or family. I get in their face and let them know about it. Then I make them feel lower than **** because thats what they are.
I was told growing up in no uncertain terms not to get involved or ever come home with a black person. When I was out in public as a kid and saw a black person, I couldn't help staring. I wanted to know why they were untouchable.
Did you find out when you grew up?
no, but I met really nice decent black folks and I felt I was cheated out of the experience of getting to know some; color doesn't mean anything; it's just a color,, nothing more.
Sometimes I walk away, sometimes I pick fights I can win. It depends on the circumstances. What I don't do is stay engaged in the conversation.
All you really can do is work on yourself. Ultimatly, others will do what they want.
No, I speak up. There are racists blacks as well as racists whites.
That's pretty racist... What about Native Americans, Mexicans, Chinese, Japanese, we're not all white or black.
I would admit it and not care
My dad is really bad - had horrible things he would say in regards to every ethnic variety on this planet. I kept my mouth shut, as a kid, but didn't (and still don't) as an adult. I think his motivation was to try and get a rise out of me but I am not intimidated by him lol and have inherited his quick wit and forked tongue. I LOVE discussing the wonderful things Ellen Degeneres has done lately on her show, since I am a huge fan of hers, knowing how much he cannot stand lesbians. I admit I am not a racist or a bigot directly...I take pride in being true to myself :)
I walk out.
