Just got back from a walk with my husband and kids.  We decided to head to the market to pick up some milk and juice.  When we were at the checkout, I went to get some other items.  When I got back to the checkout, I accidentally hit this lady standing behing my husband on the leg.  I said I was sorry but it wasn't good enough for her.  She acted all offended.  She was talking to someone on her cell and said, "Someone just ran into me, and Asian of course."  AH!  WHAT A Witch 
I WAS SO MAD!!!  I couldn't believe she turned it into a racial thing.  I said to her, "I said I was sorry, what more do you want me to do?  Do you want me to kiss your feet?!  She said, "Oh, no.  You guys think you run the world!"  AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!  I wanted to punch her!!! I told her that I did not appreciate her racist remark and she said, "Too bad."  AHHHHH, WHAT A Witch. 
Anyway, thanks for letting me vent.  Sorry for the profanity.  I needed that. mad

that makes me made. why does you being asian have anything to do with an accidental bump? she's just a freakin idiot. and makes me sick. an accident is an accident and a bump is a bump. doesnt matter if your purple and have green and yellow hair,(which would be kinda cool) she's just a stupid ignorant idiot. and dont try not to let her get to you too much . which is so much easier to say then to do. but i'm sorry that happened to you and hope you feel better soon. and just remember your smarted then her and thats why she got so mad.

Ignorance is something I dont like either
I do get much of the same treatment BUT I will not put up with it
I speak calmly and very nicely ( dripping sarcasm lol)
I am Native Canadian .....and the stigma surrounding Natives is still that sometimes of the " drunk and on social services " mindset

I have worked all my life until I got too sick I have never denied my racial background nor apologised for it
You dont have to either

You area much better person than she remember that hun
SHE has to live with that look on life and ppl I feel sad too that there are so many ppl that make anything and everything into a "racial thing"

HOLD HEAD HIGH.......Let her have hers low ......

Dear Happy,

Sad to say it is all around us and I agree with Lyn, you are a unique and special individual and the other lady was ignorant and disrespetful.

It is not what color you are or where you came from, it is what is in your heart that makes you who you really are.  (((((((((HUGS))))))))))

Lyn is wise and guess what, I am a French Canadain descendent.........so Sis you are closer than you think to me. My great Grandparents all came from Canada.

Happy your part of a very diverse family right here.........and we care about you.

Thanks for the kind words but I am completely over it. Just needed to vent.

We went to dinner and everything is all good. That lady must have been in her fifties. Leather skin, lotsa makeup. Basically, 50 trying to be 20 again. I kinda felt sorry for her. I'm stupid for getting upset over such an ignorant, foolish racist. If she were my age, I would have done some pretty serious damage to her ugly face. But then I would be spending the night in jail. (LOL)The majority of people in our community are pretty cool. So I'm not gonna let one fool ruin it for me. But seriously, I'm Catholic. In Catholicism/Chrisitianity, we are taught to turn the other cheek and to forgive and basically to get over it and move on. And that's what I've done.
Thanks again for letting me vent.

I'm glad you're over it and that venting helped. I have a bit of a temper and racism is one thing I cannot tolerate. You handled it much better than I would have.

  I got to agree, that was really rude on her part and in today's world it should not be tolerated at all and I agree that I would not be so kind to her in speaking my mind.

  I get alot off the same thing just because I have handicapped plates on my truck and it is all jacked up with big tires and all the goodies and yes I do have a hard time getting in and out but it was built so I still can enjoy my hunting and getting out in winter time with the deep snow we get but I still get miny comments on it, just because I had to readjust to the life that I still wish to live.
