Family dinner [gone racist]

By Thanks everyone - 28/08/2013 22:35 - Australia - Gaythorne

Today, I brought my Japanese girlfriend home for dinner with my family for the first time. They all got drunk and made heaps of racist jokes right in front of us. My dad forgot her name and started calling her "Rice Ball" instead. FML

That's horrible OP, I'm sorry! Talk to them and make them apologize, that's just downright disrespectful.

Wow... I'm literally speechless. Try and get them to apologize because that's totally unacceptable.

I hope she isn't too offended by it OP :/

I'm half Japanese and I find that insulting

Smh... Some people just can't handle their liqueur.

That's completely unacceptable. I hope she doesn't think worse of you, because of your disrespectful family. Your family owes an apology, to you and your girlfriend.

Hopefully your family being nice isn't an important requirement for her to stay with you. They suck for doing that, but in the end it's what she thinks of you that counts, not them. Screw them

#33 you're insulted by something that wasn't aimed at you?

He finds it insulting to the Japanese as a whole.

Wow... I'm literally speechless. Try and get them to apologize because that's totally unacceptable.

F her life. I hope they sobered up and apologised.

Drunk words are sober thoughts...which means you should sit down with them and explain how completely inappropriate that was.

CowCollector are you stupid! That WAS completely inappropriate, drunk or not.

Actually its a proven fact that alcohol triggers the part of the brain associated with truthfulness.

You can just get a new daddy, or so twkyk tells me.

Did I miss something?

I think it's a reference to the show "the whitest kids you know," though I have never seen it and therefore can't offer any more insight.

It's a wkuk reference

I don't mind racist jokes. My friends and I say jokes about each other all the time. However, in that situation, it was extremely inappropriate. I hope your family did apologize, OP.

How is that funny? I'm sure you wouldn't find it the least bit funny if you experienced the same situation.

it's kinda different when this happens with friends or when it happens with people you don't really know

16- people have very different senses of humor, some people are okay with these kinds of jokes

#30: I don't know...nothing in the FML implies it was a funny situation or that the family was joking. They just sound like racist assholes tbh. :(

Noir, I totally agree. You can tell who lives in a bubble where racism doesn't exist. It's sick.

You don't know how she felt about the jokes anyway.

I hope you also know that it makes you and your friends low class low brow individuals.

a little funny ? I thought it was very funny. rice ball ??? COME ON !!! I'm salvi and if someone called me a pupusa, I wouldn't take it so personally. especially if their drunk. I probably wouldn't laugh in the moment but its one of those "someday you'll look back" moments.

F her life. I hope you stood up for her OP.

It's sad that even in these times we're still not past stuff like this.

#39 This is FML, not the history channel. Lol

And let's be fair here, the History channel isn't always that accurate either.

That's horrible, OP. This is why I removed myself from my family. That might not be an option for you, nor is it one that most people desire, but it sure as hell saves a lot of problems, I can tell you that much.

What a nice welcome to the family... I hope your family owns up and apologizes because that's just fucking rude
