Not sure where to post this.
I've lived in an insular community for the past 5 years. Population is like 99.9% white, no blacks at all.
I am 1/2 Mexican but don't know that I "look" ethnic, or act different, or any such thing. I don't know. Maybe I do look Mexican. I don't speak Spanish.
My question. I have a friend/acquaintance here. Lately he seems to be making a lot of comments about me being Mexican. Kind of like in a joking, ambiguous way. Would you say he's being racist? I'm not asking for advice on how to handle situations like this, I'm just asking for opinions if this person is being racist. Many people here are racist and they are not afraid to say it.
He is a pretty decent guy. If he is being racist my opinion is that he has been around it all his life and he just doesn't realize it. Like I said, I'm not asking how to deal with this, I'm just asking for opinons. Thanks.
