brebrehj I've been asked "do you and your dog's get along?.....you know, cause they're german shepherds and you're, well...obviously a jew?"

You are absolutely beautiful. People are going to make ignorant statements and sadly there's not much we can do about that except react the way you did, with grace and class.

scarfish i would call that more ignorance and stereotyping and being super rude than true racist. i'm white and US born which makes me a minority in my land. my wife is puerto rican and catches more crap than me 'cause she's with a white guy and doesn't speak spanish. she's treated more racist by her own race than me from anyone else, strange.

she was raised in east NY brooklyn. when we go to visit her father there is when i feel outta place. just the strange glances are enough to feel awkward.

Cheyanna What a horrible experience! I hope there is never a next time, but keep in mind saying something sarcastic like ... The 1960's called and they want their racism back. Congratulations, you win racist pig of the year award.

Some people are too dense to realize that their "joke" pegs them as racist fools.

No Kidding.

My wife is American-born Chinese and our kids are mixed. We live in an upscale, perhaps even executive level neighborhood full of mostly whites...and southern conservatives. We never stop facing racism and, particularly, racist remarks and harassment.

I'm a white guy and an ex-Marine infantry officer (Vietnam era). Confrontation is in my blood. Nobody gets by with harassing my family, no body. There are no lengths to which I won't go to protect my family from untoward thoughts, speech and deeds. I want them to feel utterly secure even in this racist place.

They know they are protected to the nth degree by a very accomplished aggressor...me. My immediate verbal and, as needed physical aggression towards those who would diminish my family is legendary in this neighborhood. Racism can't be cured. Expression of racism absolutely can be cured. I don't do talk therapy. I do direct action.

Those who are right in the head have come to understand and appreciate that those same protections extend to them and their families too. There's order here for one reason and one reason only, I insist upon it.

At both of my kids' high school graduations they were asked to name their greatest hero. Both said their Dad who always protected them and kept them safe. It was a very unexpected honor.

Where's you Dad and/or your brothers in all this young lady? Seems they have some work to do.

Oh, I must agree with the first respondent to your post. You're a remarkably pretty young woman.

Gwenhwyfair Yup. Definitely a complex undercurrent to it. I didn't want to go there.

It's push and pull kind of thing.

As long as we have people denigrating other groups be it based on religion, race (which really race, genetically speaking, is splitting hairs to a microscopic level) sex, tribe whatever have you there will always be a push back to regain power/status/spirit. Human beings are very creative when it comes to slicing and dicing each other into separate little groups. My EX was Puerto Rican, you should have heard the things he and his family would say about Cubans. It was like they were a totally different species.

As for 'human power' we are no where near that place. I like your thinking but the reality is......there really is not any sort of human society that promotes egalitarianism or true meritocracy, far, far, far from it.

Scotty PLEASE beam me up.

Never cared for the terms "white power" or "black power" so I probably am a bit leery of "bi-racial power" as well, as the term does not lend hand to harmony amongst all humans. However, I am a big fan of "human power" which seems to be the best way to view all the different ethnic groups which make up this world. At the end of the day, I subscribe to the "golden rule". It just makes life so much easier than living one's life "promoting" one's race.

I live in the south. There are no boundries when it comes to who owns what type of dog. I'm surprised there are in other areas.
