After a particularly uncomfortable exchange at a poker game the other day, I've decided I finally need to make this thread. I don't know if it's just that I've run into a lot of bigots lately, or if I'm

just more aware of it. I've realized that even though I've made a lot of changes internally over the past several years, there are still too many times when I've found myself too scared to speak out when something bothers me. I'm sure many of you have dealt with things like this, so I'd like to ask for some advice on how you've approached dealing with bigotry in your every day lives. Any advice is welcome, but I am looking for specific advice for the following groups:

1. Co-workers
2. Acquaintances/Random people
3. Close Friends/Family

I'm a straight white male, if that makes a difference.


What a faggot. It's people like this that make work intolerable. People making tasteless jokes is part of life. But this nerd demands that the whole world be his happy PC hugbox.

Maybe he could just not interact with them socially? I'm sure everyone would like that just fine.

Regular people do not think this way. My old job was as diverse as you would expect a part-time job in Los Angeles to be. My coworkers were everything from white to Asian to Hispanic to black. No one got offended by stupid jokes and there were times when we talked a lot of shit. Latinos talked shit about blacks, blacks talked shit about Latinos, there was a Filipino who acted black for some reason. We had a white Midwestern supervisor that made fun of everyone and got made fun of. It was all good. All that mattered was that the job got done.

A lot of these racial issues, on both sides, are exaggerated quite a bit. In real life, people generally get along. Only thing was that we all fucking hated working with women because that's where the sensitivities come into play. Things toned down quite a bit when women were on the job.

The way it worked is that you signed up for shifts, usually two people to a shift, and guys usually signed up for shifts with other guys. It was much more fun that way. Some chicks were cool to work with, but you would try to avoid some of the more humorless ones.

He should yell about privilege and try to get them fired while telling them that he hopes that they die or kill themselves. Or is that something goons just do on the internet?
