    This could be either physical or verbal.

    I was a victim of a lot of verbal racism when I was younger and a couple of times it got physical. All from blacks. I've been called every racial slur in the book for simply being White (even though I'm not technically 100% White.)

    I never retaliated because I'm civilized.

    It always makes me laugh when a someone says black "people" cannot be racist. I was racially abused a lot by them and it hurt at the time.

    Share your personal experiences with racism. (I'm not talking about on the internet either.)

    Im not sure if any english footballers post here but there has been a sharp increase of racism by whites in the premier league.
    While the Football Association has condemned such behaviour, recently banning a player for 8 games and sacking the England captain for racism, it appears that in the same breath they appointed a man as England manager who has previously been in the dock for racially abusing other players.

    What a complete joke our leaders are. Fcuking hypocrites and ppl lacking moral and intellectual fibre the lot.

    I seem to recall a rugby player, whose name I can no longer remember, who stated that the game was run by 57 old farts.

    The same is true of soccer today.

    I'm a mixed race of Cherokee and white, so I get a lot of bigotry from whites and other people because of that.

    I get a lot of other different kinds of bigotry too, so it's no stranger to me.

    Oh yes, and it's always my fault, and absolutely nobody else does any wrong, simply because I exist.

    Strange. I've never heard someone say that.

    Anybody can be racist.

    Racism is a psychiatric disorder that can affect anyone, no matter what colour or race they are.

    I was watching a video earlier that made me add that comment into the OP. This woman is completely insane...

    You'd be surprised by how many people say blacks cannot be racist.

    I answered "No", but I must qualify that statement - I've never been racially abused that I remember. There may have been times that it happened, but I don't remember them - I don't dwell on such things.

    Yes ... I had an idiot test me once, but not twice, he's now born again. :)

    Sometimes you just need to explain things a little more clearly in order to be fully understood.

    I was many times a victim of verbal abuse and visual harassment, like when person gives you with no apparent reason a terrorizing hateful animal look, like you are a pray and he is going to kill you, you know, like from "Friday 13". Mostly from blacks and latinos.

    I am a European, and have been the victim of reverse discrimination in hiring.
    And the victim of racially-targeted crime when I unknowingly got out of the car in a hispanic neighborhood during a vacation to the USA. (I will mention, however, that one old hispanic man did help fend off the little brown demon-youth that attacked me and stole my credit card. He warned me in broken english that it was unsafe for a "person like you to be around here.") I later came to understand that most of the whites in the USA know where the "bad" places are, and try to stay away from those places. These "bad places" are all ethnic neighborhoods, although apparently many asian neighborhoods are very safe. These types of warnings were never in the tourist books I read about.

    White male- I can honestly say I cannot ever recall having been the victim of racism. I live in one of the most racially diverse cities in the United States and I have never encountered it.

    Interesting, I have a completely different experience from life in San Francisco and Bay Area. Maybe you are working from home or something like that. I've never experienced anything worse, as a racism towards whites in Bay Area. Always thinking to move away from here. All this "diversity" programs and liberals turned a beautiful city San Francisco into a shi*t hole, at least most parts of it. You go on a main street, which is a Market Street and there are peeing, pooping, even fuc*king people on the street, change beggars, garbage all over, you feel very threatened by these blacks, always shouting something hateful at your back... Add these gay districts. Disgusting. I can say that all human shi*t, dirt and perversion flows through gutters to San Francisco. I still can't understand why property is so expensive there. I won't live there even for free. Thanks God that my company moved away from location at Market Street. :puke:
    I was harassed there almost everyday, coming/leaving work or while going for a lunch.
    ...If I can decode correctly SFJEFF = "Jeff from SF".

    Me too, I guess it's because I am a friendly person. Normally if you are a n0b ead *cough* no- names, then ppl will find whatever reason to give you hell and if that's cause you look different then so be it, you shouldn't be a n0bhead.

    I am Latino and have been fired from a job by a boss who hated Hispanics back in the early 1970s. In youth I was beaten up by a White gang and denied entrance into segregated tennis courts and bowling alleys back in the 1960s. Such was life back in those days.

    I'm Black and I've experienced racial abuse from Whites. In high school I remember a few White kids who frequently threatened to "lynch" me. In middle school and high school, the majority of the kids who bullied me were White.

    I have also have gotten some racial abuse from Hispanics. It happened on the job of all places. It came in the form of frequent jokes.

    I am white and have never been subject to this behavior but I have 3 grandkids who are of mixed race and it was shocking the first time I heard someone call them names, when I look at them I see my father.
