Racism Comes In Many Languages

| AZ, USA | At The Checkout, Bigotry, Geography, Theme Of The Month, Tourists/Travel

(I am standing behind a woman at a supermarket. Of the two cashiers available, one is of Asian descent and speaking in what seems to be Chinese to some customers. The other appears to be of Middle Eastern descent, whose customer is speaking very loudly and slowly.)

Woman: “Do you understand what I’m saying? I want this in a separate bag.”

Cashier: “Certainly, ma’am. I can definitely speak—”

Woman: “—it’s like they don’t even cater for English speakers! Not a proper American in sight!”

(The woman then spots me, a white guy in my late 20s.)

Woman: “You’d know what I mean! Eh?”

Me: “I’m an Australian tourist here visiting friends, et Je crois que vous ‘tes conasse raciste.”

(“I think you’re a racist b****”, in French.)

Woman: “UGH!”
