it is what it is..
A big thank you to everyone who has contributed and shared their experiences. <3
You will find that in bigger cities you will face more open brutalist racism. The working classes/poorer demographics who are of of a particular mindset or upbringing will generally think less about this.
In the countryside, there are generally more affluent folk and they tend to be more two faced and like a bit of tokenism. They will befriend and “adopt” a minority. They will tell their other middle class friends all about how terrible blacks/asians/orientals are but feel they have a right to say that because they like one they can criticise the rest. They will also jump on any criticism you make of your own race, justifying it because you said it.
