Clueless People

Recommended Posts

i'm talking more about people that haven't really been exposed to different cultures or people. Folks who's understanding of the world rests heavily on the stereotypes they have learned over time and use as a crutch rather than adopt a more sensitive view to life.

 

Case in point: I spoke with a receptionist at a company today and she did not know who the hell i was looking for...

 

Me: "Well, can you do a directory search?"

 

Receptionist: "We have only one Johnathan here but he's not white, he's Chinese, you know.....oriental"

 

Me: (incredulousness giving way to laughing) "ha ha ha, did you just call him oriental?!?

 

Receptionist: "Well...yes....you know....oriental...them asians."

 

"Oriental" "Them Asians"

 

Me: ::speechless::

 

 

I am horrified a well known and respected silicon valley business has someone like this manning their phone. This woman was totally sincere.....she must have been a temp or something.

 

Anyone else ever deal with unconciousness stereotyping like this?

it's cool though, cause calling her a bitch will fix it. ha.

 

people really just don't realize that 'oriental' is not synonamous with 'asian'. it's not any malicious act on their part. infact, they probably think they're being PC. you know ordinarily your girl would have simply been like 'he chinese.'

 

i've always found it a little funny that white people can be referred to as white, but regardless of tone, refering to someone as 'black' is often taken as ignorant. people are too sensitive in some ways and too ignorant in others. oh well. fuck em all.

From my experience, most americans are like that. Which is why I am ashamed when people ask what country I'm from. Some military people are worse than that because they live in the country but still don't know anything about their host country's culture.

I called this guy I know who is a gay Jew with a penchant for sniffing his fingers a "filthy fingered faggot kike" and he got mad. What's up with that?

Really, I don't know, maybe in some circles, but I think black is the more common term. "African American" as a popular phrase kinda died out back around '99 or so. At least where I be at.

 

Race is a big issue in America. People need to stop ignoring that and instead accept it, learn from the past and hopefully move on. I think that is happening more nowadays, but a lot of work still needs to be done. I, for one, am doing my part by having sex with as many white women as humanly possible.

yeah, lots of Americans think they're being politically correct when they call me "paki". Which I hate. If you're gonna call me a paki, be racist about it.

A lot of white people are just ignorant, but can you blame them?

 

People think graffiti writers are all cool and chill..haha..and girls too. Well, I remember being at a party and this dude was calling me a paki like fucking crazy...as soon as my mob of friends left (hmmmm). All these white and Jewish girls were there and he was just going on, calling me a "paki" and that when he thinks of brown people, he smells shit, and I was wayyyy too drunk to fight, and anyway, the white girls were just laughing...they loved it. Way to go, alpha male! way to go!
