That's harsh, I guess; here in Japan is less open and more under the surface . . . which might make it scarier, now that I think about it. But it's true that in encounters like that on the street, straight out ignorance and racism hurts more.

My advice is to take it in, and don't say anything back. Absorb it and think about it - they're being really narrow-minded if they're calling you names just because you're Chinese. That's flat-out dumb. I try to pull things around my way, make them somewhat positive. If you don't shout right back, you've got the satisfaction of being a more mature person with an adult way of handling situations, rather than the childish approach those people took by insulting you.

I kind of like the smug feeling I get when I do something like that, best someone without shooting a word back at them.

I would probably say something back at them and then ignore them or diss them back cause they usually stop
No point arguing with a bunch of idiots >< if you are then use big words and act calm cause it always psychologically messes with them...oh and its funny when they get all mad and spazzy when you dont react.

simple mathematics

foot > face.

in anycase, you should plan on having retorts. think of a weakness that a person who would say such a thing has. if you act as if what they say doesnt bother you, and say something that really hits home for them, then you win, and they shut up. ...or they get belligerant. either way you win, and tell them so.

another great way to take care of people like that is to say

if you steal the meaning away, it becomes useless.

Yes they are being racist,and yes you should reply back ... Actually I would've beat the shit outta them cause I am bad tempered, but violence doesn't really arrange conflicts. I am 14 and I am matured enough to make the difference between being racist and not. It doesn't mean someones a kid that he/she wont understand.But wait...if someone was being called the C word... well that person should laugh their HEAD OFF at those ignorants. isn't china the famous creator of paper,compass and the printer? All that to say that it doesn't matter What RACE you are from you should be proud (I am not saying that you are not) of your ethnicity. I am arabic and if someone was making a comment about me being a terrorist,"woman locker in houses" o_O,"Ben laden",ill make that person regret it. YAY! ^^

I laugh in their face, pop my collar, and dust off my shoulders.

so yet again i got picked on last saturday when i walked pass a group of teenages, and one of the girls said the word ch*nk when she saw me, and i stopped walking and said 'why did u have to be racist?' and another girl said 'my friend is sorry' (yeah as if she really was ), and i started to argue, so one of the lads tapped my showder and said 'just turn around and go', and i thought ok i'll leave it, but as soon as i turn my back they started to copied what i said 'why did you have to be racist' and 'ch*nky' 'ch*nky' so i turned back and said, 'why do you even have to be that racist', and a 14 year old girl poped up and said, 'we're not racist, YOU ARE', so i was thinking what the hell, and said 'no you are, you child', and she went 'i'm not a child' (btw i'm 19), and i went 'yes you are, you look like 12 to me' and she was really offended because i called her a 12 year old, and i'm not suppose to be offended when they are racist to me? wtf?!

so the passengers started to look at us and i tried not to cry and shouted the last words 'you ignorant people, and you will be spending your whole life time working in a tiny corner shop stocking up the shelfs because you are so racist and uneducated' and my tears pour off when i turn my back, and it just made my whole week miserable

so yeah if someone tried to make my day bad, i will make theirs bad too, so my questions is, would you guys be as bold(or stupid) as i am?


REPIES:

thanks to all you guys here, you make me feel better, and yeah i guess i have to learn how to patients!

akkune: i'm in england too.. in yorkshire matie..

hugegnome: lol i wish we had that in here then we can call for help, all we can do is call the police if our house got damaged, but they couldnt do anything either

snow-chibi: thats nice, global village

anongigazz: yeah i know what you mean, i think stereotype type jokes is ok as long as it doesnt contain offensive words, like russell peters jokes, 'chinese people speaks as if they're chopping veggetables', its a stereotype, usually who's mother tongue is cantonese speaks like that, i speak like that sometimes, and thats a stereotype for cantonese speakers, but if someone say 'ding dong chink chong' then thats over the line

xxfangirlxx: exactly, its hard to hold it, and yeah sometimes racist people try to offend you by using wrong word, my friend whos a chinese girl but got a darker tone, got called a 'n*gger' before, WTH? *sorry if i offended anyone*

music190: lol

dotjaratillors: i think i should call them chinese wannabe next time ;p

midnightzorya: i couldnt agree more, kids (not just white kids, but kids in general) these days steals, cheeky as ever and spoiled so badly because most of their parents are *well, not poor* and think they can do anything, and i would really like to smack them but because i'm 'an adult' so i'll get arrested if i touch them, yip exactly this is how stupid it is, when someone physcally attacked me or our house, police dont really do anything, but if i do the same to THEIR kids, they'll make it so obvious that its my fault, and (about the anicent thing) my teacher (english) said the same thing too LOL but i think its ok for english to say it but not chinese because they'll think we're racist


What she tried to say was "chink" and personally if someone did that to me... I'd bitch. I'd bitch hard, there's no need to walk away and act like you're above it. Girl you need to BITCH, don't cry.. it's a racial slur.. don't let them make you cry, you better bitch at them next time sistah. Don't play games with little children, bitch at them... bitch at them AND BITCH at them. Tell them how much of dumb asses they are, how ugly they look, how slutty they look, how immature they are.

Letting that shit slide is only going to make them do it more, bitch at them and lower their fucking self-esteem by a huge percentage. Nothing is wrong with being able to shift into "bitch fest" mode, I do it all the time. I'm normally the nice, funny person... until someone deserves a good bitching. That's what you need to learn to do, bitch at them and show them they're dumb asses.

Don't go all bat shit crazy on them like "OMG U SO RACIST HOE BAG SCHANK WHOREWKJfdhkjdfskdhjfhdsjhfjdfsd", do something like "Heh, you have no right to be calling me names. Look at you big nose, you're a fucking fat ass whale, your teeth are hideous and you look like the biggest slut I've ever seen. You dumb bitch of a preteen child." Insult like a sophisticated bitch, and they'll actually listen and not laugh all of the way. Racism isn't much of a fatal thing anymore, it's bad indeed. But don't act like it's the saddest thing on earth dear, it isn't. Just don't let the things slide, and insult them like a huge bitch back. Trust me, even if you sound like you're mean while you turn bitch mode on... you're doing it for a good cause. That's a good thing... Also nothings wrong with little racist jokes with friends... but if it's not a friend... and they know they're not your friend... then that's when it's wrong.

[Also you don't need to edit your first post over and over with responses, just post normally... it's more fun! :)]
