How often do any of you experience it? and it doesn't necessary have to be "in your face" racism but it could be just an attitude or a certain vibe one gets from someone of another race or ethnic group..

Example... I was walking down the street, coming home from work today and there were like this group of Asian women talking. Now as I'm walk pass them, this one woman gives me a certain look (and I'm sure we all know that look), now as I'm walking, I notice that her facial expression was straight but the way she was looking at me, yall just don't know.. I wanted to ask her "is there a problem"? but I'm a grown man, I don't have time for such ignorance.

But back to my first question, How often do any of you experience racism of any kind, form or expression? I notice that I get this same "look" from white and latinos from time to time. They don't have to say or do anything. The "eyes" does it all.

I experience racism almost on a daily basis so often that I no longer conciously acknowledge it.

Seeing a billboard with a picture of an orangutang on it saying "African wild life" is a form of racism.

Going to the store and seeing a box of pink talcum powder being labled "flesh colored" is a form or racism.

Walking pass cars on the street and hearing doors click, or white people telling me to smile more are forms of racism.

Going to the book store and seeing Jesus, Moses, and all the ancient Hebrew figures being portrayed as white is a form of racism.

When I meet foreign Muslims on the street and after I greet them (although we're dressed the same way) they look me up and down and then ask me if I'm really a Muslim, is a form of racism.

And I won't even get into what I witness coming from the televison and radio.


I run into racism so much in America unfortunately it almost doesn't bother me anymore.

I think most of us have gotten used to it.

It's not until I go to a place like Canada where it's not as obvious that the lack of overt and subtle forms of racism actuallyy alerts me.

in L.A its a bit different its racism from your own and from others. Being in high school you gotta brace yourself for a lot of racism. Some times its just flat out stupid like one time I told someone I knew how to play guitar and they were like thats not a black person instrument and the dude was black. I was just confused foraminute
