Goodness, someone actually said that? Sorry, it's stuff like that that make me ashamed to be human. NO ONE deserves to be treated like that on the basis of age, race, religion, etc., etc., etc.

*gasp* It's outrageous that there are still morons who behave in this way! After all the "advancements" most countries have made in the way of multiculturalism, you'd think that this kind of behaviour would be stamped out by now... My grandmother often recalls when she first came to Australia in the 70s and was often verbally and sometimes physically assaulted because she and my mum were "filthy wogs" coming from Yugoslavia. It's absolutely ridiculous that racism is still happening. I'm terribly sorry that some idiot said that to you, it's awful. I hope that something brightens your day after an experience like that.

People still say things like that???!! Geez! I mean I guess I know that there is a lot of hate in this world still, but still...

Rant- this is the 2nd time that I called the endocrinologist and it went straight to voicemail. It is soo frustrating that no one will pick up or call me back.. I understand a busy day or something, but seriously??

I am only a slim bit Indian (from india) and a little native american so that made me very dark skinned. I used to get called nasty names too. None of that has changed as much as we think. I still know people who define a person as "that black guy". I have a very multi cultural backround and it makes me feel physically ill.

on to the ranting. I hate being bored *yawn*. I am trying to get amped up to clean my pleco's tank. Filthy little bugger.

Keep on it or see if you can get recommended to a new one. I have thyroid disease and endo's are just as busy as regular doc's with all the stuff they treat. Hang in there. Someone will answer. Also, a bit of advice. Make a list of everything you want to ask them so you can be checked for all of your concerns in one shot. I had to do this because mine was a couple of hours away.

I am so sorry to hear that someone actually said that you. I just cannot believe how ignorant and intolerant some people can be. The United States of America was founded by immigrants. It is amazing how many people living here forget that.

I remember how it felt the one time somebody in a diner I was working at when I was 18 said I looked a mexican. I am not very dark complected but I do have a touch of an olive skin tone to me. The messed up thing is that my ancestry has been traced back to mostly, well, America.
