You have to speak like an adult all the time.  Whatever part of you you're worried about killing by this is something everyone else will be glad is dead.

Furthermore, the owners and servers at these restaurants are hardly ethnic Mexicans or Italians.

Sure, as long as it's just us white people around it's fine.

/bet the kitchens are full of Mexicans

Dear Abby
Whenever I go out for Southern food, I like dress up in a hood and bedsheets.  My husband says this is offensive, so I told him I'd consult you.  I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings.

Dear Abby,
Whenever my husband and I go out for Chinese food, I like to pull my eyes into a squinty shape and shout "OOOoooh Ching-Chong, Ting-Tong, Ling Long!"  My comments are made in the spirit of fun.  What do you think?

Dear Abby
My husband and I went to an Irish pub last night, and I drank until I puked, and then beat the s**t out of our waitress.  I didn't mean to insult anyone.  Furthermore,  the owners and servers at the pub are hardly ethnic Irish.  What do you think?


Dear Bigoted nitwit;
I think you should kill yourself.

DEAR MUY CALIENTE: When you visit a Jewish deli do you tell the server, "What am I, chopped liver?"

I wonder if she even knows what that means.

Now see that I am offended by, because you just lumped me in with the KKK.  You're just as bad as she is.

The whole point is that stereotypes are bulls**t; all of them.  The "racist southerner" stereotype is no different from the "slanty eyes" Asian stereotype or the drunken spouse abuser Irish stereotype.  If you're offended by that one (as you should be, stereotypes are inherently offensive), ask yourself why you weren't offended by the others.

Yes, I know.  You're also saying I'm as bad as she is, which indicates to me that you didn't get my point.  The "racist southerner" stereotype is no more offensive and no less offensive than any of the others.  All of them are equally offensive, when viewed objectively.  That particular one only seems more offensive to you because it is your own group that is being caricatured.  The Irish "wife beater" stereotype and the Asian "slanty eyes" stereotype are caricatures of some of my ancestors, and I can assure you that they are equally offensive.  That was the whole point of my earlier post - people who use those types of caricatures are bigots.

Dear Abby,

When I order a cheesesteak at Geno's, I do so in Espanol and throw in a "Jodete!"  for good measure.  Is that offensive?
 
2013-04-06 03:21:25 PM
"Arriba" just means "up" as in "Manos arriba" or  "Hands Up!"

In a restaurant, maybe not a big problem.

In a bank?

Get ready to duck.

The funniest thing about your post is that is pretty much Abby's answer.

At least she is quoting a beloved mexican role model. But she should be saying it when ducking out of her bill, leaving it to Slowpoke Rodriguez.

Actually what's left out of the letter is whether she does the same schtick every time, in which case "mmm, that'sa spicy-a meatball-a" is not just stereotyping, it's being a bore, which is actually a worse sin.

Dear Abby,

The last time my husband went to an Afghani restaurant he strapped on an explosive vest. I told him this was inappropriate but he laughed and said they all do it. I stormed out and he blew the place up. Was I rude? Should I have stayed with him?

Whenever I eat at the Afghani buffet, I wear a suicide vest.  I do this in the spirit of jest.  Is that wrong?  I don't want to offend anyone.

The wife and I went to a Japanese bar/restaurant and she ordered a "tub girl". Should I be offended?

/I might be doing this wrong ...
 
2013-04-06 05:48:45 PM
When we're at an Italian restaurant, I will sometimes use an Italian accent to say "pizza pie-a!" My husband tells me it's offensive.

At least she doesn't ask for a glass of "Dago red" like my dad does.
 
2013-04-06 05:51:13 PM
Dear Abby,

Whenever the husband and i visit the local Jewish eatery and order chicken, I request that they trim some of the skin off. The husband and I laugh ourselves silly over this. Then we ask if it's oven cooked and then run out of the place. Is this wrong?

Yours,
Heinrich Schindler

Some Mexican restaurants encourage it.
 
2013-04-06 06:00:16 PM
I hate going to Mexican restaurants.  Their menus are complete gibberish.  I tried to order a taco with extra cheese.  The server tells me that it's not pronounced 'take-o', it's pronounced 'talk-o'.  WTF???  Look at how the word is spelled, that is a long A word.  And then when I pointed out to her boss that she was illiterate, he started to laugh.  I thought he was laughing at how dumb his employee looked.  No, it was at me.  Then he, the boss, pointed out that there is no cheese on the menu, but something called case-o.  But, case-o wasn't on the menu.

And to that vegetarian restaurant, if you don't want me bringing Whataburger into your restaurant, serve friggin' meat.  How hard is that???  Normal places serve meat and offer a vegetarian option, so why not be a vegetarian restaurant and have a meat menu for those who rightfully eat meat?  I blame you for the fact that I didn't get a second date with that hippy chick.

when I take my dad out to eat he makes a point to try saying "gracias" to our waiter if he thinks they're hispanic no matter what kind of restaurant it is....  that is why I don't take him out to eat much.

Yeah, it's not racist when the people you're making fun of aren't around to hear it.

Whenever I go to an Indian restaurant, I like to go "Woo woo woo woo" and do a little rain dance.

Those are the right kind of Indians, aren't they?

Whenever I go to a Swedish restaurant I make sure to bring my gun. I have  a concealed carry permit, and do this in the spirit of jest. Is that offensive?

Dear Abby,

when I go to a Russian restaurant I always ask the waiter to say "moose and squirrel." Then I drink vodak and dance on the table with my arms folded, I do this in the spirit of good will. Is that offensive?
