I have nothing nice or polite to say about racist people. I do think friendly jokes between countries is fine because it’s a joke but when they start going too far and offend then it’s too much. I say this because of some people at my school can be rather racist! Usually just against the English and I just find it rather odd and pointless! (I consider myself English even though I live in Wales!) and the Germans because of the world wars (I really want to turn round and give them a history lesson and make them feel bad!! ) but since those earth quakes in Japan last month there has been more and more racist things being said towards the Japanese, and that is really really insensitive, A) being racist in the first place and B) being racist towards a country that has just had a massive earth quake and tsunami hit them. I don’t know how to handle it when people are being like that, I want to say something and I usually have something to say but it just won’t come out and the connection between my brain and mouth won’t work and if I do try to say something I’ll just be ignored and they’ll just say ‘oh what do you know! You’re just a quiet little girl and you know nothing’ or that I would just have the strongest urge to punch them very hard in the face but I know that I’ll get into more trouble than they would! And I just want to know how would you guys do if you were in that kind of situation?
