    Except when you lose out on a job opportunity for being white.

    Yeah and if we didn't and complained, we'd be racists. <Moves>

    We don't agree on anything, but this. That shit never happened. I could count on one hand the amount of times random people have just decided they could be racist in front of me. People don't act like that.

    Furthermore, dude isn't even white. Even if there was some secret thing white people do where they walk up to white strangers and express racist sentiments, they aren't picking the ethnically ambiguous guy who "could" pass for white. Bullshit.

    As far I know it's only a...bitter minority...of people who use that term.

    I'm black and asian, but often get mistaken for some sort of Eastern European, or maybeee Puerto Rican depending on how my hair is looking--and while it's not an everyday thing, I have most definitely had instances in bars/drinking occassions, where people have made black and asian "jokes" in front of me, not knowing I was both.

    Most of the time, I don't even think they were trying to be racist. They just thought they were being funny.

    It's not just a white thing. Pretty much everyone does it. I've seen it with other blacks and asians too.

    This dude is claiming that on a regular basis, white people just walk up to him, buddy up to him then make disparaging remarks about Mexicans. That’s 100% a lie.

    Can you imagine somebody sort of standing next to you, giving you an elbow nudge then saying racist shit to you??? On a semi regular basis??? Nope.

    Lol yeah man. We all hear and read little quips about different peoples. This one is just as goofy as the rest. Nothing to be too upset about unless the person saying it gets in an uproar about "", or "me rikeys" too.

    The...heuristics...of your post are quite sound.
