As a white male, most scholarships are unavailable to me, and colleges require a higher standard to enter.

I have to agree. It's kind of funny to complain about societal privileges if you're born a white man. I mean, how much more of an advantage can you get?

As one of my favorite comedians, Louis C.K., has said in a stand-up routine.

I get people saying Ching Chong, Chinese, French, Spanish on me.. Chinese/Korean customers assume I'm one of them and that I could speak their language when I can't. I get the "you're smart because you're asian" when I hardly think I am. I am purely an Asian blonde. If I were to dye my hair blonde I would.

I'm like a mixture of Chinese-Filipino and Spanish and I don't speak Chinese/Mandarin and Spanish and people assume that I can. The only unique thing about me is that I can speak Greek if required to because that's the other language I can speak besides Filipino and English

.... I'm Black nuff said.

If I wear a Suit, I'm a muslim. If i wear baggy jeans, I'm a thug. If i wear sweat pants, I'm lazy. If It's dark out, I'm a thief. If I have a girlfriend I'm a playa. If I'm solo I'm on drugs. If I have money it's gotten illegally. If I'm broke it's because I refuse to work. Basically in the USA... as long as I breathe someone has a problem with me. And now that I've voiced my opinion... I'm an agry black man.

It could be. I did almost run over a foreign exchange student in high school.

Sorry if you didn't mean it that way but your last line was .. funny... in a dark humour "ain't that true" sort of way.

Surely that's not everyone you meet? here in Canada at my job depending on my shift I'd say 60% of my co-workers are... well... not sure how to categorize them because they don't collectively self categorize as a monolithic 'black'. Some talk of a Jamaican Heritage, for some rare few it's Haiti, then there's the ones from Giana. I personally tend not to have expectations of my coworkers based on where they or their parents were from before they became Canadian. Though on the other hand, because I look 'white' (I'm actually of many national origins including Native Canadian) It's assumed that I think I'm the boss or have a line to the boss. Since our immediate supervisor is originally from Hong Kong I find this Ironic.

It was meant to be a little funny. But actually that is fine. "Black" would only refer to X-slaves in the USA. Mainly because every other race that we consider black has roots elsewhere that can be proven or traced. Much like it's a bit cruel to call a Chinese person and a Japanese person "Asian" when they have completely different heritages. While I may be the son of Slaves I cannot attest to the Cultures of Haiti or Africa like others can. The only History I have, the only culture I have is here in the USA. And while I know no other Home, I live with every negative Stereotype possible. Minus "cant dance" " Small pecker"..... By stereotype the only thing I'm good for is screwing and being a slave. Every other aspect of me as a person is below average... (by stereotype).

Though we all have different Stories we can all understand that Stereotypes and racism are not needed. They are built from ignorance. Yet we all are racist, at least a little. It does not mean we should spread these ideas. Keep them to yourself is the easiest way to stop racism. Meaning when I see a bunch of Spanish people, I shouldn't assume they all Drive honda civics and refuse to speak english. Though the thought might cross my mind. By not acting on it or voicing it, Racism dies a little that day. But the moment I walk up and ask them, "So what color is your civic, HAHA, you dont understand english anyway HA HA HA"..... The racism has grown 100fold in two sentences.

Whenever I go to a Chinese restaurant, the waiters/waitresses would start speaking to me in Mandarin or Hokkien, or whichever dialect they speak and I sit there looking confused because I have no idea what they just said. I am not Chinese.

Whenever I go to a Japanese restaurant, the exact same thing happens, but they speak to me in Japanese. Fortunately, I actually do understand a little bit of Japanese so I can usually tell them that I'm not actually Japanese without a confused look on my face.

Ever since 9/11 whenever I go to the airport I am 100% always picked for "random" explosives residue check. And my passport is always scrutinized very very carefully

Random white trash and abos on the street keeps on telling me to "go back to where you came from". I live in Australia and I was born in Australia, so I'm already where I came from >_>
