Got called a racist today Login/Join

I finished my workout this morning and went to speak to a few coworkers who were at the gym. In the middle of the conversation a guy walks up to us. I know him, he's a former coworker and he doesn't like me because I'm a "racist." Not a fan of the guy but I remained friendly.

Me: Hey man, how've you been?
Him: Hey I know you. I always remember a racist.
Me: What are you talking about?
Him: You gonna talk all that nigger shit now?
Me: Really, what are you talking about?

He kept getting closer with every word and continued with various comments like "pussy" and "piece of shit racist." I finally said, "You have a nice day" and left. I stopped at the front desk and mentioned the confrontation to the woman on duty. My friends said that the guy followed me out the door and watched me leave then was at the desk talking to the woman for several minutes. When I got home I sent a detailed message to the gym's Facebook account explaining what happened and that I'd like them to follow up with him and let me know what steps they're taking to address the issue. My friends said the guy followed them around the gym and stared at them until they left too. I guess they're guilty by association which is ironic since one of them is a white guy dating a black woman (and she was one of the coworkers I was talking to at the time).

A little backstory: As I said, the guy is a former coworker. I haven't seen him in a few years but his imagined grudge obviously still burns. I'm a racist because I wasn't an Obama supporter and had the nerve to not see racism in every word or deed of the entire race of white people on the planet.

Some people never change. Guess I'll have to crank up the situational awareness to 200% now. It's always something. Roll Eyes

Sounds like a nut that we may see on the news after he tried something stupid with a rifle. Watch yourself with this one.

I was walking across a street in my neighborhood with my wife on saturday, a car was coming down the side street and swerved in front of us to avoid having the stop, then rolled through the stop sign next to us. His window was down and I said "nice driving asshole", one of my liberal retarded neighbors goes "I bet you wouldn't have said that if he were white.... RACIST".

I had a few choice things I wanted to say, but heidi pinched me and we kept walking. something about how "we have to live around these people"

So, OP was called a racist?

No big deal to me as I, a supervisor, was called a Racist by black coworkers who I had to discipline for not coming to work or being late to work.

Of course those I disciplined still couldn't get their shit together.........because I was a Racist.

you clearly don't know how this works... White guys that only date white women are obviously racist, white guys that date black women are virtue signaling, which is also racist, so they're racists as well.

I got called a racist by a 12 year old boy a few weeks ago when I did not want to donate to his "basketball team." Kid's been out on Peachtree St panhandling for his "basketball team" for months now.

If someone calls you an racist, just simply say "No..you're an asshole"; don't say "I'm not a racist", just keep it short & sweet.

I'm not white. Most, about 99%, of the racism that has come my way has been from blacks.

I would be sure to keep a low profile with someone like this. He is angry, paranoid and is still upset about a perceived injustice. I would be curious as to his current employment situation, any run ins with law enforcement as well as substance abuse issues. The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior. This guy is trouble and you do not want to be the focus of his attention. I avoid antagonizing people like this.
