Ever get treated differently because of your race?

Today I actually ditched school with a friend for a while. We're freshmen so we're not allowd to leave the campus at all. Anyways we were at a quick stop and there was a cop right next to us in line. We were actually pretty nervous but when we made eye contact he just smiled, nodded and left. By the way my friend and I are both asian.

Also I've noticed that most of my teachers (the ones that aren't also azn) dont check my classwork (unfortunately they do check tests). They assume that because I am azn I do all of my work perfectly. So they just flip through the pages and give me 100%

I understand that this is awesome, trust me I'm not complaining but hey it's not very fair to the other non-azn students.

Similiar situations or the exact opposite?

LOL, this is weird...

You need to get their attention...

Try not doing any work at all .. let's see if the teacher will directly give you a 100% ..

Uh no. You have to earn that auctoritas.

Asian or not, if your the class failure, I doubt the teacher will consistantly give you A+'s in your homework. My math teacher never looks at the overachiever's homework, and scans the failure's homework to the nitty gritty details such as missing the Given in geometry proofs.

Unless your teacher's racist or something. Well. Life sucks.

When I was studying in Japan, most of my classmates thought that I am inferior to them at a certain extent.

That never happened to me before.

Not really. My freinds and classmate always emphasize the fact that im asian but I dont think they treat me differently from anybody else.
Posted 12/12/08
That's interesting

If it were a black person, the police would question them in an instant. Oh well, it is BS that people get treated differently because of their skin color. I know a lot of dumb Asian people (no offense)

OK, so I'm European and everyone thinks I'm Russian... or Italian!!!
I mean... what the heck?!
Anyways, one day me and my friends [mixed races] we were playing a game and I was the only "white" person there. And this Latino guy has this huge soccer ball and it hits my leg really hard. I picked up the ball and the guy said "HEY WHITE BITCH! GIVE ME THE F**KING BALL!"

1) I did not know them.
2) They did not know me.
3) I was going to give to them anyway!

So after they said that, I got so mad that I kicked the ball over the fence and they couldn't play soccer for the rest of Lunch period.

No, because my school is about 95% white. Everybody gets treated the same though which makes me happy.
