well, it happens here, in l.a., to my face, no less. i was at my gym and a guy was complaining to a friend of his about arabs, saying that they were all lazy. when i turned to him to say something, he added: "they're worse than mexicans!" so, being in compete shock at this point, i forgot to defend the arabs (i, the chicano who converted to judaism) and simply said: "i'm mexican!" he turned to me, said: "you're mexican?" and then he turned back to his friend and said: "like i said, worse than mexicans."

I'm always too floored that people say shit like that to come up with any good response until it's way too late. People suck.
