Disgraceful.

I too married an asian. The crap she cops at work is unbelievable.

Apparently she bumped into a co-worker who happened to speak the same native tongue as her in the lunch room, so they started having a conversation. Apparently some old bag walked in, interrupted their conversation and admonished them for not speaking in English. I was irate when I found out, however, was on strict instructions not become involved.

But the crap she cops from customers is the worst. Not so much the younger generation, which is good, but the attitude from older white women (mostly) and men. Its embarrassing. I've given up trying to defend us.

My wife suffer horrendous, soul destroying racism. And that's just at home.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

There's a crazy old homeless lady on Adelaide st in Brisbane (out front of my shop next to the police beat half the time) that abuses randoms constantly all day until the police get sick of her, she particularly dislikes Asians I've had to jump in a few times to distract her while the target can get away. I'm guessing TR knows the lady I mean, she's even threatened to set me on fire one day.

Here's a clip of her normal agro, not racial this time but you can imagine what it's like when her target is a young Asian, thankfully when it is a racial rant someone always steps up cause unlike this video she'll normally follow em down the street with abuse.

A racial rant of hers is doing the rounds on Facebook actually I'll try and figure out how to copy it here.

Here's an alternative viewpoint.

At the moment, I'm trying to lease a 700m floor of a building in Kobe. We have identified three options, two of which are owned by major banks and another owned by an investment company. We're talking pretty serious international companies here.

We are looking to spend about $350,000 a year on rent. We are a well established company with some pretty respectable profit figures. We have about 5000m of space leased in cities around Australia and Korea.

The point of this is that we're pretty attractive clients by most standards.

These companies just do not want to deal with us. They are quite happy to come out and say it straight - we don't want foreigners in our building.

Australia has some nasty racists, but it has much, much less of the institutionalised racism you find in other places. From the receiving end, and at the end of an extremely frustrating day, I'm going to come home and scream at some poor Asian girl on a bus….it's payback time.

He's a disgrace. Went on Facebook blaming his behaviour on alcohol. I don't think alcohol changed the fact that he is clearly inherently racist...

Made it only 20 seconds into the video before I had had enough.

The smug look on the little ***** face as he looked into the camera made me sick - his mate filming and condoning the behaviour should be named and shamed as well.

Japan would have to be one of the more racist countries out there. I'm not sure how it would go down in Australia publicly pointing at people of another race while chanting a slang word for them. Seems acceptable in Japan.

It is about money always has been always will be, you just don't want price they have in mind for you because you believe it is unfair. You might be right.

Just reading some Wilbur smith books.

Don't know if its based on fact, but certain countries would only buy slaves if they had been snipped so as not to "defile" their blood line. He could have just made that up because it is a fiction book, but yeah worth mentioning.
