Second, sadly what you say is true. My BF/MOH is Pakistani and she's been yelled at by cabbies in Chicago - all sorts of rasist sh*t about how she and her "people" ruined the US. She's like "dillhole, I was born and raised in Ohio."

awww...that makes me sooo mad! your poor friend.

i even had someone tell me that my english was so bad they couldnt understand me....if you have ever talked to me on the phone, i have no accent whatsoever.

    Wanna have some fun? Take those order now pay later forms out of every ethnic magazine you can find and fill out their home addresses. At the very least it will cause them stress. I once had a homophobic boss and I subscribed him to the gayblade and he griped about it all week (didn't know it was me, apparantly his wife didn't believe it was a mix-up). It doesn't solve anything but that was my best week ever at that job. Hang in there . . .
    Okay - so I am reading through some old posts and come across this.

    At a job where I was before, someone suscribed the owner/president for GAY PORN and it was sent to the office! That got some talk started around there!

    oh on friday last week, we were having a legitimate discussion on whether to include accents and tildes in company and executive names, and i was making the case that its more correct to put tildes because it can change the meaning of the word (like for example a±o versus ano = year versus @$$hole), and my boss immediately yelled across the newsroom "you're just saying that because you're marrying a mexican!"

    um no, im sorry... i was making the case for adding tildes and accents before i even started dating my FI.

      I hate when everything turns into a race issue It's pretty annoying.

      Yeah, people can be really stupid & ignorant sometimes. I have kind of learned to ignore most of it. My FI gets pretty offended though. We went out to dinner the other night at a steakhouse and at the end of dinner the waiter asked if we wanted two checks...and he was like "umm, NO". He was really upset, because to him it was like the waiter didn't think we belonged together. FI wanted to write on the check "No, jerk shes my wife". LoL. I didn't let him though.

        People are such twits. I mean seriously!!!!

        Whenever I'm at work and hear a comment that begins "I'm not a racist..." or is otherwise blatantly offensive, I just smile and say "you're okay if I quote you to HR on that, right?" Even if they think it, it shuts them up so I don't have to listen to their stupidity.

        Happily married since 2008

          Definitely get out of there and fast. They sound totally asshole-ish. And completely unprofessional.
