    They're probably more concerned about his white chinos than his white anything else tbh.

    This is it, for anyone who is brave enough:

    I swear there's one of Piper recording Richard, rather than the other way around.

    Yeah, there is. Since I am in a procrastinating mood, I will look for it. Don't say I'm not good to you.

    I don't really have any indian friends - maybe one. So most groups I hang out with are exclusively white, and sometimes with a few African Americans or Hispanic people.
    Now usually I don't really define myself by my ethnicity since I grew up in the US in a place where I didn't hang out with lot of immigrants.

    So usually even though I'm the only "brown" person there, I really forget about that fact. But sometimes I'm reminded of it by a comment or a question. Mind you - these are NOT racist in any way shape or form. They are usually innocuous jokes or legitimate questions that I might be wondering too, in their position. But being honest, and maybe this says something about me, sometimes those things bother me. Not because they had racist intentions - not at all - but because it sometimes makes me feel like I'm not part of the group. It singles me out, which sometimes does bother me.

    Now I imagine if those comments were racist more often, I can very easily see how I could become hypersensitive to language and phrases. Many phrases that people think are normal part of the language are designed to single people out. For example, "black magic" - it may make me think "you mean I didn't work as hard as the other people - or did something different compared to them? If you wouldn't use that phrase on other players, don't use it on me."

    The point is that I know it's impossible to be truly colorblind but you have to realize that just the simple act of singling people out because of their race can be uncomfortable sometimes even if you had no malicious intentions behind it.

    So imagine now how someone might feel if the comments or questions had even a little bit of history racism behind them.
    I basically came here to share a similar story.

    I came to the US as an awkward 14 year old so the culture change was just ridiculous, and in high school of all places, it was incredibly tough to try and fit in or feel even the least bit accepted. It didn't help that my school had very little diversity, almost none.

    So fast forward a few years to where I'm an awkward adult working on the shop floor. I used to work with a bunch of technicians that had a similar skillset as mine and we would constantly shoot the **** and talk about whatever. Every once in a while we'd be sitting in a room somewhere having a chat when someone would bring up something relatively innocent but stereotypical/mildly racist that made me take a step back and realize that I'm in a room full of white people and that I'm different. Now while there's nothing wrong with what they would typically say, it certainly made me uncomfortable and took me out of the moment or the conversation, bringing back feelings of the high school years where I was made to feel like I had to prove myself worthy of inclusion.

    Once again, the comments were almost entirely innocent, so for me to talk to them about it was difficult since I knew they would then take an extremely conservative approach when talking to me which is also undesirable. Really, the best approach is to just leave those types things out of a conversation.

    I can only imagine how frustrating it must be for US born people who look different to be constantly asked about where they're from. Like where they're really from.
