I am Indian and I have been accused of having a bomb in my turban. I was at the airport and i was going to Florida for vacation with my friends. As I was walking to the gate entrance, one of the men standing in line behind me held out that I had a bomb in my turban. People started laughing. One kind gentlemen actually stood up for me. He was not Indian, in fact he was American, and he told the man about my religion and how my turban as different. I was very surprised how he knew about my religion. I was very pleased to see someone that actually stood up for me. So has anyone been racist to you or have you been made fun of your race? Do you believe there are people who would stand up for your race.?

kuttamack ! pride of race and nationality is quite proper for one person of another foreign nation. however, if your intentions are to reside in another country, you, by all means should dress like them. if you feel that your being offended, then the best recourse is to plan only a temporary visit to the country you are visiting. regardless as to whatever country your representing with plans to set up residency, you should discard your present country's clothing, and wear the same apparell that represents the country you plan on living in. that's it in a nutshell, need i say anymore.

I am Jewish and was raised by a woman who hated Jews, so yes I do know about racism. I am sorry that that happened to you. It is sad that there are so many ignorant people amoung us. I am very glad that you had the experience of a perfect stranger standing up for you though. It is always good to know that there are people out there that will not stand for the evil of racism and bigotry. Shalom~Adoniah
