Minorities Break Down The Most Oddly Racist Thing They've Ever Experienced

https://www.georgetakei.com/most-oddly-racist-thing-2646810721.html?rebelltitem=1#rebelltitem1


Racism is terrible, there's no room for debate on that. But sometimes terrible things can also be terribly weird.

Today we're going to talk about instances of racism that left the victim confused more than hurt. Because, apparently, some people need to be told that Asian women are allowed to be named Lisa.

One Reddit user asked:

Minorities of reddit, what experience was so unbelievably racist, to the point where you weren't even mad, but just... Confused?

And fam, I cannot handle it. Some of these people legitimately seem like they mean well - which kind of makes things worse, honestly.


This is one of the more amazing things I've read in a while.

When I was probably in preschool or kindergarten a blonde white girl licked my face to see if I was made of chocolate. I kind of liked it. Her name was Karen. That sounds like a joke, but isn't. We're still facebook friends.

1. My mom owned a travel agency when I was in high school

and one of the agents went to this African country where almost 100% of the people there were black. This woman had very light hair and skin. She was walking down the street when a little girl saw her and started screaming! The little girl had never saw a white woman before and she was terrified!

The woman was not offended as the little girl was just innocent and reacting to something that scared her. But I remember everyone laughing about it.

Of course that is different than people having ignorant beliefs as adults.

2. LOL!

When I traveled in China, several Chinese people wanted to get their pictures taken with me because I was the first brown person they've seen.
