My mum called me a 'Chink' the other day! ????? What the hells with that?! Im not even Chinese! Im not even Asian! Im White! And shes my Mum! is there somthing i dont know?! I have small eyes for a White guy but thats it. 2 of my mates also said it aswell. i dont really know if that can be classed racism because im White. My old friend who died last year RIP was of Israel decent used to get called 'Paki' but thats all really i dont think i've encountered any more.

I get called a Paki sometimes.
But the funny thing about it is, Im not even muslim. Or a Pakistanian (If thats a word) in any way.
Im an Indian Hindu who can speak perfect English, without that penguin waddle behind my walk and that "ridiculous" accent.
(But I can put on the accent...)

Umm, my worst experience was when I was walking home at about 7PM.
Street kids thought they could be a little clever by calling me a Paki in the middle of the road, thinking I wont do anything about it.

I'm Persian, but I don't look it... So, it's only been (native) English people that KNOW me (but dislike me) that have called me names and discriminated against me. XD

E.g.

1 .

When I was around... 9 years old? I had this teacher who was evil... Pure evil. She hated me (and the 4 other Middle Easterns in my class) because we were the ONLY non-English people (out of 15 kids) in my class -it was a small class.
Anywho, me and those 4 Middle Eastern friends and 2 English girls had all forgotten to do the homework.

The Result?

Me and the other 4 are put into detention (even though 1 of them wasn't even IN on the day we were given the homework) and the other two English girls were let off... -_-

I don't hold it against those girls. I only hold it against that awful teacher... Especially since she was cruel on so many different levels, anyways.

2 .

I knew a guy who called me a suicide bomber over MSN. And he was dead serious.
We haven't spoken since then. XD
He never liked me much to begin with... And I never really liked him... So, yeah, I wasn't surprised, but I was offended.

This actually happened 3 days ago ! first day of school as well =[ i was at the train station buying my train ticket ( i was about to be served ) and there was a white woman and a black teen behind me. I think they were standing side by side and then they didn't know who should go forward so the black teenager stepped forward and the white woman suddenly got all angry and and started shouting 'NO I WAS HERE FIRST' and it was RIDICULOUS she started PUSHING and shoving like a 5 year old to get to go first! my friend and i COULD NOT believe it. it was childish beyond belief ! ( im 14 but I even thought OMG couldn't you just be an adult about it and let her go first and then you go ?? cos she was gonna be served next anyway!!!. the rascist part came when the white woman said' GO BACK TO YOUR COUNTRY , THIS IS NOT WHAT WE DO IN ENGLAND IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT THEN LEAVE. WE DONT WANT YOU HERE! (soz bout the caps ) and she just kept repeating go back to ur country . though i think the worst part was that she was saying it to her as if she was stupid (over ennunciating the words and such) in this whole patronising manner as if she thought cos she was black she couldnt understand. it was awful cos me and my friend were soo shocked( we're both black ourselves so it hurt hearing all this)! i know this may sound weird bt even though i live in S.E london i've never actually encountered in person racism sure ive seen it on tv and heard other people's story about it but nt in person.Your right racism is just pure ignorance and i feel sorry for the people who walk around and thinking they know everything and everyone when infact they know nothing at all


soz for the long mesage!

i've had it before when i started secondary school but not badly. Only one person kept saying egg fried rice, chicken chow mein but eventually he gotten over the childish name calling since my friends told the guy grow up lol.
Appart from that not really, i do get a feeling sometimes when i'm on the bus/train i get people staring at me with evil looks but maybe i'm paranoid. Kinda happy were i live since chinese people get respected quite well only downside is its darn dangerous >.>
