I like this thread and the reaction to this thread and the reactions to the reactions.

My question is whether all talks concerning race and actions can be categorized as racist?

If so, can the conversation continue or must we immediately stop the conversation and self-report? Are those minor infractions or major infractions?

If we stop all talk of race and trends and statistics and history and feelings and fear and preferences; does racism cease to exist? Or does resentment and misinformation spread?

If I go to a Chinese restaurant I want Chinese cooks. Probably doesn't matter as far as how authentic the food is but it makes me feel better.

I don't remember going to a Japanese hibachi and ever having a Japanese cook though.

Am I racist for reading this post?

Am I more racist for quoting it?

Am I more racister for replying to it?

And for the record, I am mostly white with some other white mixed in with a dash of red.

I've only ever been there once. Ordered a chicken biscuit to go. Took for ever, because they had to fry the chicken. I get out on the interstate, and find that they forgot the chicken. Always check your order, blah.

Default Re: Does it really make a difference if the waiter is the same ethnic as the food

Must we always find a way to be offended? I didn't think the first post was out of line at all. It's a little misinformed, because I've been to lots of different ethnic restaurants and been served by people of a separate ethnicity.

I will say, though, that the only type of restaurant I have gone to where the staff has always been the same ethnicity (countries of origin may have differed) has been Mexican (authentic). Other than that, I don't think I've ever had an Italian server or one who could be perceived as Italian when I've eaten at Italian restaurants. And the only times the staff of Asian restaurants I go to are all one ethnicity is when the place is a little mom-and-pop joint, which probably means the staff are almost certainly friends and close family.
