Re: Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

Had a girl ask me if I knew any "N-word Americans" I told her that's not what we typically call them. She asked how I'd refer to them and I responded "uhhh Americans?"

Also had a girl refer to her boss as "one smart N-word"

It's because most of their knowledge about this comes from rap songs and the rest from movies.

Re: Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

Most of the racism I've seen is centered around straight out ignorance rather than full on hatred. Dropping the N-word is something they mostly hear in rap music. So they really don't know what the history is behind the word.

Here's how comfortable people can be with it:

Re: Clueless kid moving to Manila - Never been to Asia before

Their use of the n word doesn't seem malicious however there is so much overt racism in south east asia. I always get a kick out of asking people what nationalities they like/dislike and hearing how bluntly they respond. What's worse is it's more of a true racism strictly based off colour. Where as most racism in the west has a basis in more cultural associations with skin colour.

Goes hand in hand with their whitening beauty standards I guess.

I have a dream of a world in which people of all races can say "sup *****" with neither implication nor fear of racism.
