Good ole Wichita Kansas. He should have known better trying to live out in those boonies with his skin color.
I'm sorry but I'm too lazy to read that whole thing. Are you saying it's the degree of prejudice that makes it racism, or is this about the institutional aspect? I'm not trying to strawman you, I'd just like you to spell out your point so that I don't have to guess.

Technically that story is an example of Islamphobia but my point is someone discriminating against you is not on the same level as being threatened by law enforcement and either arrested, shot at or killed.

Obviously, but that doesn't make it not racism if you aren't being confronted by an armed government official. It just makes it not terrifying so long as the cop isn't replaced with a lynch mob or group of drunk rednecks. Racism isn't a contest, which is the entire point of this exchange. It's all garbage, even pedestrian racism.

You should have pulled out a shotgun. "You gonna open an account for this foreigner now, Bitch?"

I was being ironic and I'm not about to try to explain that phenomenon to you again.

Oh go on. Please. You know how I love it when you act condescending towards me. It makes my day.

I love racism. It's made a great game called try not to get shot by the cops. When hanging out with my black friends, I always win!

The J-cops can keep you for 520 days, and they don't have to tell anyone. You just vanish one day.

Oh, you don't have your foreign residence card on you when the cop asks for it? They can haul you away and not tell your family or employer where you are for 520 days.

This is what I'm talking about. That shit would never happen in the States, this place you guys keep saying is super racist. It's not. It's mildly racist.
You win here's a high five and a cookie for being the world's biggest victim of racism.
