Racism Is a Myth
One day a large group of black hs kids celebrating a birthday. This black server noted to me "I sure hope they don't sit in my section--I haven't made squat tonight" She said that blacks always stiff her so it was not racist. Anyway, a white server got them-they camped out for two hours, and left her about 2 dollars on a 250 dollar bill and of course filled up her whole section during the prime time of 8-10 on a friday night. They ran her ragged such as she would ask them if they needed anything and only one would say Another coke. when she brought it, another would say I need a refill and they were laughing about it
the manager told them not to ever come back. The head one called him a Racist!!,, the black kitchen manager came out and told them in no uncertain terms to get the F out of there.
Hate to say it but some "racism" is based on an objective basis as that Indian former editor of the Dartmouth Review noted in his book "The End of Racism" where he noted cabbies in NYC avoid black males not because of racism but because over a 5 year period almost every cabbie in NYC murdered was murdered by black males
I know there are exceptions. There always are. I just didn't come across one in my seven years of waiting tables.

I've only encountered racism towards me once.
I have to listen to sexist bull**** from the females in my class every day. But that's ok. They can keep the man-hate, I'll keep the extra 23% in my paycheck

You, during your days of running people down a river (If memory serves, you mentioned white-water rafting?), experianced that a majority of white males of an age within 10-15 years of you (excluding those with certian religious backgrounds) tried to hit on you at some point during the trip.
Are you saying that, given the above, you would not then form a stereotype that would lead you to expect this behavior out of any other white males within 10-15 years of your age, when transported down a river by a female of your general attractiveness?
I think that you might.
