SirEattonHogg: tricycleracer: What derogatory name would a Chinese restaurant put on a white person's bill?

How is your question relevant since the person in the article is Korean?


It's like Scottish and Irish - they're the same. Scottish leprechauns, Irish haggis - whatever.

Dwight Schrute: Shalom, I'd like to apply for a loan.
Pam Beesley: That's nice, Dwight.
Dwight: OK, do me. Something stereotypical so I can get it really quick.
Pam: OK, I like your food.
Dwight: Uh, Outback Steakhouse, I'm Australian, mate!
Michael Scott: Pam, come on, "I like your food," no, come on, stir the pot. Stir the melting pot, Pam! Let's do it, let's get ugly, let's get real.
Pam: OK, if I have to do this, based on stereotypes that are totally untrue, that I do not agree with, you would maybe not be a very good driver.
Dwight: [shocked] Aw man, am I a woman?

Being offended does not equal being damaged. She should be satisfied that cashier has been punished by continuing to work at CVS.

Can you delve more into this? I'm not trolling, I just have honestly never heard of blacks persecuting Asians. I'm a white Hoosier male aged 29 if that helps. There's a fair number of negros hereans much fewer Asians. Where does this attitude come from?

Scrotastic Method: I will say this: we just had a bunch of our weeding photos (804 of them) printed by CVS and they looked outstanding. I mean, our photographer was very, very good, and I'm a not-fulltime-pro-but-still-published photographer so I knew to upload the photos at 4x6 @ 300 and all, but still, I'm discriminating and the prints looked great. We rolled the dice on CVS because they were fast and I had a coupon code (thanks Slickdeals) and we couldn't be happier. We stuffed 4 albums for all the family that helped us pay for the wedding.


Four albums?!  Talk about overkill.  Your family must be really involved in your weeding and gardening.  Just email them a single pic of the front yard after the Chemlawn guy shows up and kills all the dandelions.

didn't say anything about prosecuting... I'm talking your average run of the mill discrimination or 'small' racist ocurrance like on TFA or things like like mocking, making snide racial comments etc....

Unless the Asian has lived in a 100% white community all his live, most will say they have faced more discrimination from blacks then whites.

The only time my receipt will have a nickname or something other than my actual name is when I run a tab at a bar.  Well, I guess it's not a receipt but my total bill.

This! I don't see how people have a right to sue over insults. It's taken things to a whole new level. If the employee had actually caused some harm, like tripped her or ruined her property, then ok, but seriously?

If I sued every employee of every store that ever pissed me off, I'd be rolling in dough. I could start a lawsuit right now for discrimination after a store employee refused to sell me a bottle of wine last week. She used her "discretion" and chose not to sell wine to the pregnant lady. It's not like I asked for a glass to go with it right then and there, and it wasn't for me anyway.

But I wear big girl pants and just won't return to that store, which is EXACTLY what these idiots should do. GOD frivolous lawsuits piss me off.

New business model.
Get a job at any fast food restaurant.  Have friend come in and put down the most offensive, racist thing imaginable on their receipt.  (believe me, I can come up with better than Ching Chong)  Have friend sue restaurant.  Get fired from a job you don't want.  Split the $$$.

Exactly. The lady was all, "I can choose not to sell this to you." I wasn't going to argue with her.
So I left all my groceries on the conveyor belt and just walked out. I went to another store of a different chain and left negative feedback on their website. That's it. I didn't call my lawyer and sue the store. That would be really stupid. Instead, I no longer shop at Safeway. Besides, Raley's has a better wine selection.

Look, stop trying to find the white equivalent to every instance of racism. There isn't one. Fortunately for your grandparents, in the history of the world most other races haven't had the opportunity or the desire to oppress and label white people. When it did happen to white people it was at the hands of other people. Stop telling people how stupid they are for getting offended because YOU can't be offended with a racial slur. You all should be thankful, not angry.
