    So you are saying that the person who was being joked about should have responded more diplomatically?

    Good point.
    Apparently it is not acceptable to mention another person's ethnicity in the slightest, even with no harm intended. (Unless they are White)

    But, its perfectly acceptable to over analyze a instance of perceived racism and then get violent about it.

    People of different races shouldn't be treated as visitors from a foreign land. That's the kind of thing that creates racial divides.

    It would likely have been wiser if he either ignored or reported privately to the Human Resources the racially charged comment. And, the person who made the racially charged comment, would have been wise to not make such a comment. Hopefully, this explains adequately, what I mean by diplomacy.

    What race was he referring to, precisely? And where in his comment did he refer to said race?

    So what you are trying to say is that we cant talk to our colleagues at work like understanding adults and have a bit of humor.

    We have to run around walking on eggshells and be weary of anyone different from ourselfs.

    Yes, that is going to really help real racism and self-segregation go away.

    People of certain races should not be harassed by members of the white races with needless jokes and comments. They have enough to deal with already, with the various types of discrimination and unfairness inflicted on them.
