Das Waicist!


I was having lunch with an Asian friend of mine, and this short Asian lady walks by. She was very short, height was just below 4 foot mark. I say to my Asian friend, "If an Asian person is less than 4 feet tall, does that make them a midget or just an average Asian person?" He laughed, and replied, "You're such a fuckin' racist bastard, you know that?"

Upon hearing this, I thought to myself, I can't be racist. I just. Can't. Be. An. Racist. So I did a little google search to look for some way to prove I wasn't racist. The result I found was this test that Harvard conducted. So, for the sake of science, I took the test. Here's my result.


So maybe I'm just racist for wrong type of Asian. CaucAsian, not Oriental Asian.

  1. To me to be a "racist" you have to be malicious about it, not just making a harmless joke about a stereotype.

  5. I've had people pull the "that's racist" card on me many times, even though I'm not racist. Just them being touchy and insecure I suppose...

  6. racism's fine as long as no-one from that race is around. If they are, substitute religions.

  8. Acts>thoughts. For me, the biggest racists are those that act with hatred, then come these that support them.

  11. I don't know. I think people looking for racism is more racist and anything else. If it's always at the forefront of their minds, doesn't that make them racist too?

  15. You know... As long as you don't start to negatively discriminate someone, I don't mind you noticing that Asians aren't tall.

  18. I think that the white hetrosexual male is the only race in the world that you can ridicule and expect no comeback or protest of any kind.
