work, or when you were shopping. Ie- That Black Guy looked suspicious or
that Asian woman over there.... I've never understood what difference it
makes to mention the race of the person. Usually when someone says the
race, they accentuate it trying to make the story more dramatic. I've even
caught myself doing it. But when I do, I usually say "That guy in the red
shirt and blue pants looked suspicious" or "That woman over there". I mean
how many times do you hear "That White guy stole the car" Not often.
