yesterday in the news, Prince Harry was caught on video saying waht they call a racist comment. I then remembered my chinese friend who\s husband experienced a hurtful racist comment in a crowded shop from one of the store keepers. What would you do if you hear a hurtful racist comment? Have you ever made a hurtful racist comment? Have you experienced it yourself? I know this is a very sensitive issue but I would love to hear your stories.

I have never made any racist comment in my life because i think it is disgusting , but i have heard hurtful racist comments before, they are very sickening speeches.

I understand. It is indeed very sickening. What if you heard somebody say a racist comment to a person. Would you stand up and say something to the person saying aracist comment or would you remain silent?

I will try to stop his or her nonsense if possible, then i probably will not want him to be my friend or anywhere near him, as it is embarrassing to be around a racist especially when i am not one.

I don't really know what I'll do if anyone comments something like that to me except for smile with a pity on my face for the person's ignorance. I have never commented anything racist as its disgusting and the worse kind of emotional torture. I hope nothing like this happens to anybody.
