At times like this, who cares about casualty? I would've ran far, far away if my drunk friend ever said anything like that. Feel better OP, and please refrain from making racist comments when your drunk. Please.

Gotta say, I think it's ridiculous that they beat the crap out of the whole group just because one person was being a racist prick. It's exactly that kind of thing that encourages these racist morons and makes them feel justified in their bigotry.

As much as racism annoys me, and it must suck to be an american citizen, often born there, maybe for generations (not that it should matter, but to a lot it seems to) and be discriminated against... Now this guy will tell all his "I'm not racist, but..." friends how he was drinking casually in a bar and these Mexican guys beat him up for no reason, and they being racist idiots will believe he was totally innocent... the story gets twisted and told again and again, and it perpetuates the ridiculous stereotypes. Often violence makes things worse, ignoring it or an intellectual discussion, proving you're a normal person will do more in the long run. Hard as that may be in the moment. If I was OP I may have just joined in and punched Jeff...

@80, he never said Mexican, he said Latino... There is a difference, so that would make you my friend a racist for assuming that the Latinos were Mexicans. Mexico isn't the only place Latinos come from. He also said it was his colleague, not his friend... I would have just dipped out the moment the idiot said that starting line, nothing good ever comes after that.

Word. Also I understand racism is wrong and not to be harsh but if someone is being raciest you just need to ignore them you can't do anything about someone's beliefs or opinions. Beating the crap out of them will probably even make their opinions stronger

Well, I'll be packing my bags now. I thought a Cyanide and Happiness joke would be funny. I'll just leave.....Out into the cold world of the internet.....Yeah, you get the point. Bye, I'm done.

Better choice than "getting out of there" would be to immediately stop them in their tracks. When one of your friends/colleagues/associates starts a sentence with these types of words, you should instantly stop them and tell them that nothing positive could possibly follow that statement, so they should just keep it to themselves. [That is as long as there're other people around. If you know that everyone in your group can stomach what's about to be said and that there are no strangers in hearing distance, then you can perhaps let it slide.]

A variation of the "I'm not ___, but ___" is "....but I have (insert minority group here) friends!" People seem to think they have a free pass to spout bigoted nonsense if they include those statements.

#6, that's not even what she said. She was talking about being gay, not racist. And she misunderstood being gay as a boy cross dressing so she didn't even know what she was saying.

Everybody confuses prejudice with racism. Racism is hatred, whereas prejudice is a preconceived notion, such as belief in a stereotype. For example, you could be prejudiced in thinking that black people all love watermelon, but that doesn't necessarily mean you hate black people. Believing that black people are inferior by nature and should either be subservient or exterminated is hatred and therefore racism. So everyone is probably a little prejudiced, but true racism is very rare these days, at least in the western hemisphere.

Not true, people sometimes use that phrase to make a casual observation that doesn't intend to be deemed racist but in fact, more analytical- so lets not label people here.
