    Everyone seems like they have a bit of racism in them.


    Even my autocorrect who just corrected racism to tacos. Although I will give it the benefit of doubt that I probably typed tacism.

    I think everyone is a sort of racist in one way or another and we arent the only ones, people from other countries are somewhat racist too.

    I used to think that there is less of it nowadays but then I see all the anti-Muslim threads here and it seems it just shifted to another.

    I assosciate in a general sense with one elderly dogmatic rascist out of repect for his wife and because he has offered me his friendship.

    In addition, I am friends with, or related to several "classists" (two social conservatives, one "ivory towered" liberal) who though not rascist, take a very dim, but polite view of anybody, regardless of race, who is beneath their socio economic class.

    Though not "rascist", these people do heavily assosciate certain races with the "lower classes"- and then presume that they must be of low intelligence and be from a culture of low value etc.

    Oh, there are reasons. They're just far more complex than you could understand. Muslims, Jews and Christians all hate each other and once again, the reasons are palpable if one studies history.

    I know one. He's 86 years old. Name's John. His parents came to the United States from Russia when they were very young. Dad never learned to speak English after living here for close to 70 years. Not sure if they were citizens. John is such an old fool that now, I just roll my eyes. When he was younger, I regularly took him to task. When he was in his 50's, I ordered him out of my car in Downtown Chicago telling him to take his bigoted, racist comments on the road. I circled the block and came back for him. One of those moments I rather regret...picking him back up, that is.

    He's an ignorant idiot. About most everything.

    Some people say it's mostly older people who are racist, but I have seen 20 somethings who are racist/prejudice. My friend is about 28, and when I knew him, he refused to eat at establishments that were mostly African American. I never understood why. Did he think the establishment would be less clean? Did he think that they didn't know how to cook food or wash dishes properly? I'll never know, but he moved to Texas. His family and parents were the same way.

    Why is it rude? People speak foreign languages in front of me all the time, and I don't care. When my friend talks to her mom on the phone, they speak Italian. I heard people talking in German the other day... I never feel offended when somebody uses another language other than english.

    I'm taking about a situation where there's 3 people and I'm the odd man out. [often in a business environment]

    English, especially for business purposes, is the universal language.
