Well.. everyone hides their ugly past....

Look at the Japanese-Americans during WWII, and what we did to them.

That's not really the point of being able to laugh at silly racism. I prefer to think of myself as a culturalist.

Certain cultures.. I can not stand. There are white/black/middles eastern and so forth..

I would not be offended if someone were to say that I probably have a bad temper and drink a lot...

My little brother's wife is from India. She looks more Hispanic than Indian and they live in Texas so her origins are sometimes questioned. So when people ask her about her ethnicity she says, "I am Indian. The dot not the feather." My little brother has been known to answer back, "She's Indian. The 7-Eleven, not the casino." My little brother is 6 ft 5, has blonde hair and blue eyes. They are quite the pair.
