Like being disowned from the family was a bad thing.

I'm not a racist, but those fucking Somalis who live next door are wearing brightly colored silken robes . You know how those people are.

On my way back to Iraq (from leave) a guy at my airport terminal in Houston was wearing his Muslim headdress. I didn't say anything, but I stared at him like an old white man from Jasper, Texas would stare at me. After we got on the flight, though, I realized that he was probably much, much less dangerous than the people I was on my way to see.

Everybody's racist. Imagine how much worse it'd be if everyone was mute.

Was it due to your training and your were trying to size up a threat level, or were you just flat out being a hillbilly?

I had already been around Iraqis for quite a few months and I think at that time I did develop a prejudice. So a little bit of both. I tell that story though because it's one of the few instances in my life where I've done something rude just off of appearances. I think everybody is a little bit racist and you've got to be able to laugh about it, you know.

I will admit to having a strong disposition towards people of other cultures.

No, that's not true. Certain cultures I guess. Mainly religious ones.

Oy.

My mom told me how she had a friend once who dated a black guy. The friend's parents hated the boyfriend and kept trying to keep her from seeing him. Apparently it didn't work and the two kept sneaking out together anyway. My mom said the moral of the story is that if you don't want your kid dating someone, don't make it forbidden and they'll probably break up anyway. If you have the whole "forbidden" deal, it turns into Romeo and Juliet (or at least a mess).

I think that racism comes in waves depending on what's going on. After African Americans were no longer slaves, everyone got all freaked out and there was the whole segregation thing. The wars in the Middle East and the 9/11 attack go on, people in the Middle East and Muslims are treated suspciously. After 9/11, an American schoolgirl of Egyptian heritage wrote in to a magazine. She said that after the class learned about the attacks, a classmate said to her "Your people did this!"
