Some of the hundreds of examples from the site:
A boy refuses to believe I’m Indian until someone sharpies a black dot on my forehead. It’s clearly visible in the yearbook photo that is taken later that day.
“I raped this shit out of that girl.” --A “friend” talking about killing a female character in World of Warcraft.
“You speak so well. You don’t sound like other black girls.”
During the Oka Crisis of 1990 in Quebec when the Mohawks of Kanehsatake, along with other First Nation allies, barricaded a highway to protest Oka City Council plans to develop their burial grounds into a golf course, a bunch of us workers--all white--are having a beer after a long day. We discuss the crisis, then unfolding, between the Indians and the provincial police. One of the guys says, “Fucking people--why don’t they all just go back to India?” We all just stare at him, dumbfounded.
Out to lunch with two heterosexual men when one mentions that a mutual friend of ours “doesn’t seem that gay.” The other responds, “Are you kidding me? That dude is gay as AIDS!”
I start talking about the importance of gender equality in class. A male student comes up to me, points his finger in my face and says, “People like you are the reason why the world is a terrible place.”
An older man who I am hoping is a veteran feels the need to tell me, “I killed many of your people, but I have no ill feelings towards the Vietnamese.” I’m Filipino.
“You look exotic. What are you?”
Moreover, it's something white males like me have little or no experience with. Until you've been called a savage or chief or mocked with feathers, whoops, and dances, you can't know how harmful racism and stereotyping are. You can only suggest it, as I've tried to do here.
