    I don't think that is racist. I mean we learn languages in school to better communicate with others who are diverse.

    I guess if you are doing it as imitation then it could be offensive, but I would not say racist.





    This is ignorant but not racist.

    sardonicism, your head = over.. this was to all the hyped up bs race threads, this included.

    to the idiots/douchebags on both sides of the fence who

    a) feel the need to display their preference non-stop to annoyingly no ends despite no one really asking..

    b) those who focus on these types and won't shuttup how inappropriate it is, all the while could be spending that energy into people who don't make such things priorities in their lives or have grown beyond it...

    c) and those such as i, who comment on former and latter..

    I don't think racist, but it can be pretentious, especially when I do it. And worse, when I do it badly.

    A legacy of my living in Germany for several years and traveling around Europe, I honestly find it more natural to say some things in either German or French. We have a French friend (born & raised there) with whom we socialize, go out to dinner and so forth, and I try to speak French with him. Of course he's fluent in English, no need for me to use French, but he's kind enough to correct me so my French doesn't totally atrophy. I just wish we had a German friend, for me to practice that language, too.

    If people don't get it, it's because the race warrior threads and shrieks of "that's racist" around here are too far beyond parody.

    Why would someone feel that way though? Sure from your vantage point, its xseems funny. But why would someone feel the need to be a race warrior?
    Jakelsaac, or whatever name you're using now, honey, who cares.
    This is in line with the recent race threads and the lack of progressive thought on this forum.
    If this was such an issue, they would have been "outed", no pun, a long time ago. No one cares about a real personalty, although there were attempts.
    Remember Waikiki or some stuff like that?

    Yes, it'sdefinitely racist to speak a different language other than your own. I speak several langauges and that makes me a racist. I also eat all kinds of international food--Japanese, Italian, Ethiopian, Chinese, Greek, American (if there is such a thing), Vietnamese, French, Lebanese, Indian, Filipino, German, Swedish, Italian, etc.--and that makes me a racist as well.
