The world has many opinions on racism. The world views America as the heart of racism. I have been in retail store management for years and let me say that if I ever made a comment about someone (minority or not) needing or having a greencard I would be terminated without prejudice immediately. And I have seen people lose their jobs for calling someone "chico""paco""jose" for racially intended slures, when the person's name was "David".
perception is how people are judged not by what they mean.If someone perceives that someone is being racist and offensive then that's all that matters. calling someone fat, stupid, retarded, a pig, lazy, annoying, is not being racist but just spiteful. but they are only attacking a singular person. not an entire race. ANYONE making any remarks deaming as a racist slure should be IMMEDIATELY BANNED. but what do i know i only live in Georgia where there are towns (ALBANY) that still have the slave auction square in the middle of town. They talk about the "war of northern aggression" aka the civil war. I am from the north and have many arguements with some of the backwoods country people. and all I say is racism is used by the uneducated who know nothing and should do society a favor and just stop breathing.
