Yes, it sounds like a racist remark
It was insensitive
There was only cultural gulf and misunderstanding
The fellow's sensitivity over his ethnicity was coming to the surface
Is bad handwriting a stereotype for people from Philippines?
People should be more careful throwing out accusations of racisms
''That's not his problem, that is the Filipino's problem. ''
The only way to make a significant move towards ending racism, is if everybody takes responsibility. It is not just the problem of individuals.
''So ready to convict someone for not conforming to the political correct utopian desires of yourself. ''
Everybody knows, that making unfounded negative assessements about a group of people, is not politically correct.
You, like Disneylib, are creating your own conclusions from the story, the conclusions that you want to conclude so you can then turn the chicken scratch philipino dude into a victim of racism, so then you'll have something liberal-like to cry about.
''...then maybe I'll agree with you.''
You don't have to agree with me. Terminal nit picking about details of what I said, what the opening poster said... would not be useful, in my opinion.
What im trying to figure out is how you, or anyone, can come to the conclusion that the guy in the OP is making a statement about all Filipinos because he draws another person into his joke and the recognizes the coincidence that they are from the same country.
You know how often **** like this happens to white people and we fail to recognize and condemn or criticize it? Its all a part of the "one edged sword" of racism.
''As an aside, though, people can take "politically correct" and shove it up their ass. ''
Maybe, you yourself will one day be on the wrong end of it. It might take one incident, or just a little more awareness, or something else for you to realise the importance of political correctness.
''You know how often **** like this happens to white people and we fail to recognize and condemn or criticize it?''
It has happened to me too. But, I really don't see a need to condemn it, even if I dont agree with what some folks have said to me. For sure it irritates me, but it is the expected fall out, of post oppression.
Anyway, I have the advantage of being able to look at the issue from a number of angles, because I belong to a couple of the put upon groups, as well as being of the skin colour which is not put upon.
