26: Okay, let's do an experiment. Would you consider it homophobic if the grandmother would've written OP out of the will for being homosexual?
After all, they didn't explicitly state that homosexuality would be something bad. All the grandmother did was punish the OP for this specific thing.

The only reason one could argue that it wasn't racist, is because humans only have one race, homo sapiens. Even then, this means nothing but semantics. The grandmother considers punishing OP for looking like an Indian, which is, in fact, a derogatory statement about people of such color.

#38, for current generations in their teens, 20s, 30s, that's probably the correct interpretation. Most of us, thankfully, don't automatically assume something is racist or say racist things spitefully. For someone who grew up in codified racism, like the grandma, it's probably racism.

If I didn't care at all I wouldn't upvote good videos on YouTube. I just happen to not care regarding fml votes or some other sites. But yes Master of Rhetorician I could have worded that different.
