    I didn't think anyone would be clueless enough to call me a name because it's obvious I'm not a bigot. I stated an observation, and if saying that in my experience (including yesterday) Asian women tend to not drive well, you mustn't understand the definition of "bigot". Have a nice day.

    Stating that asian women are the worst drivers in the history of the world and you think they should have their own driving test is bigotry.

    It may not be racist/bigoted on a massive level, mutter it to yourself in the car, whatever, but especially in a place like this all your statement does is reinforce stereotypes and normalize racism. There is only one step between 'Asian women are worse drivers' to 'Asian women are worse attorneys'. If it was a joke, then don't quit your day job.

    EDIT: The more we call out 'casual racism', the quicker we can stamp out harmful racism.

    I didn't cry. I pointed out your post that doesn't understand the definition of "bigot" and the post that lied about me being a bigot.

    big·ot noun \ˈbi-gət\

    : a person who strongly and unfairly dislikes other people, ideas, etc. : a bigoted person; especially : a person who hates or refuses to accept the members of a particular group (such as a racial or religious group)

    Full Definition of BIGOT


    : a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance


    You can thank Merriam Webster for your education on what a "bigot" is.

    If you can't understand why your own words were bigoted then it is no wonder you consider white privilege a fantasy.

    No, you're defining privilege as nothing more than not being discriminated against. That's not a different thing. It's not a privilege to not be discriminated against.

    It's telling (and a bit sad) that even in a thread where we discuss the wider social implications of bigotry you find it the topic so humorous.
