I think we have now firmly established that Brits have no exclusive rights to the word actually, and Americans actually use actually several times throughout the day.

Actually I try to reinforce stereotypes that apply to me as often as possible. :P  I love Stereo.  Mono was kind of sad.

On a serious note, IRL I am a mix racially, philosophically and politically.  I do tend to project certain stereotypes because I continually meet people who decide, based on appearances, that I don't belong to one or another group.  It's a knee jerk reaction, an means of amusing myself at their expense.

For example, I have an ethnic and spiritual heritage (one of several) that has a very pronounced identity.  I met someone in another venue, who I share this heritage with, but who is very different from me in other areas.  Now I see that as an opportunity for healthy debate and interesting conversation.

Now here's the irony, this person no longer practices the spiritual heritage and I am an avid student, yet this person speaks in a very condescending way trying to "educate" me.  My natural reaction is to be frivolous and to act as clueless as this person expects.  I feel compelled to reinforce the stereotype he has applied to me.

The Truthiness of stereotypes is a pretty comfortable playground.

<shrug>   I don't really pay a lot of attention to stereotypes, or the way other people act.  Let them be whatever the want, IMO, so long as they aren't trying to hurt me or people I love.
Truth is treason in the empire of lies.

I last person I met who made racist comments was a guy from India. He made some generic comments about black people that you might see on TV. He just got off the boat as they say so I think he watched too much TV. I yelled at him and told him you can't talk like that in the US. I think I scared him enough to shut him up. Makes me wonder what American stuff is on TV in India.

I worked with another guy from India who asked a guy from Thailand if it was true that Thai people eat their babies. He read it somewhere. Note this guy was in an arranged marriage. I asked him how got along with his wife and all he could say is "we have a child together". So I guess that is what mattered to him.

I work in IT in the DC area. So there are people here from all over the world.

Everybody is a racist.... most whites avoid the subject like the plague which proves our bias. (I'm being adopted soon so I'll be Hispanic... I don't have to prove it, the government has to disprove it and my mom will show up as Hispanic so it's all good!) Some are just worst than others

I'm racist against individuals who have proven to me that they deserve to be prejudiced against.

Sneaky, miyabi, sneaky. However, you left your prints all over your slanderous tampering with the evidence.

(though, i do look a rather dapper fellow in a top hat as well.)
