Happened pretty often while i lived in Germany but since i moved to America it didn't happen anymore or at least i did not notice it.
For those of you hating on Germans now for being racists....I actually am German and white which is why i got stereotyped as racist and Nazi quiet often and obviously not from my fellow Germans lol

It does take some special kind of persons to stereotype you as a racist cause of your race lol

When I was little, people spoke really slow, because they thought I only understood Vietnamese.

Please, I understand English better than Vietnamese.

A while back I had a black lady yell at me "you know u a nerd white boy!" how ironic.

Also, when I was in middle school the other hispanic kids would call me white boy because I didnt speak spanish but looked it i guess.

Yes. When people can guess my race. They automatically assume when they meet me that I'm Mexican or mixed with everything that I'm not. I often get asked "Why do you talk white?" "Is your hair real?" "You listen to that kind of music?". Kind of used to bug me, but I just let it roll of my shoulders now. People's opinions never cross my mind until they make them known. Even then, it's a hit or miss whether I'll actually listen.

Yes, I have.

Quite a lot of people expected me to love watermelon, Kool-Aid, and fried chicken because I'm black. (Not a fan of those things, anyway)

Some of those same people thought I was stupid, but when they found out that I had the highest grade in the class, they begged me to help them.

When I tell people that my family's from the Caribbean, some always assume that I'm from Jamaica.

Lastly, some people ask why I don't sound "ghetto" or why I don't listen to only rap.

However, getting mad over these kinds of things is not worth it. Every single person is a little racist. if you say you are not, then you're just lying to yourself.

^This

I'm West-Indian, from Guyana, have an Islamic last name, look Chinese, and have some Irish/British roots. People are mind-fucked by me.

I get the Chinese & Hispanic slurs mostly. I have a hard time telling my own people that I'm one of them lol

Being pulled off buses and planes was the worse though.

It happens to me pretty often. Once people meet me and actually start talking I normally do hear how Im not what they expected based off of looks. In all honesty I could never blame them because I know how I look. Large, built, bearded black male wearing all black normally with a fitted cap and some shades. I fit a couple stereotypes. The ugly looks I get let me know that even if I was in a suit and tie, it wouldnt even matter. LOL

Dont get me wrong. I listen to rap and hip hop and can rap It Was A Good Day and Nuthin But a G Thang word for word. I speak Ebonics quite fluently and I DO enjoy some fried muthafuggin chicken. I can dance and I say nigga way more than I probably should but there is quite a bit more to me than that. You just have to not cross to the other side of the street when you see me. I dont bite...or rob at gunpoint.
