Well you are judging gas stations based on the race of their staff, and you are deeming the non-white ones not good enough from what I can tell. Is that racist? It easily could be, or some kind of conscious bias, I'd hardly call it harmful or nefarious racism though. You don't seem to have passed it on to your daughter, whatever your hangup is.


I genuinely think this is a sensible & reasonable response. Nail on head me thinks

It is not racist that you are comfortable around people that are like you. Because every race does this and it is just a natural progression unless you have no choice.

Though, skipping on the other gas stations based on who works there... I believe that is racist. They could be Canadians born there but grew up different.

I understand what you are saying though, where are the white owners etc... Especially in Subway, I've noticed that here for over 17 years... Still go there. I believe it's because they get help by the government to start a business.

In the UK some of our Asian shopkeepers are the best - some great banter.

However on first approach I know a couple who were not good with communicating and being approachable - why? Because they were used to being treated as lower class, or worse still, avoided.

Break the barrier and the banter will carry on as normal, in fact, it'll be even funnier because other cultures bring other angles to jokes


That said, I do see where you are coming from and my natural behavior tells me I am more comfortable with someone who is from my culture. However - I do avoid shopkeepers who I know hold terribly insulting and stone age views on women - that is not acceptable in my opinion and they are not welcome in my society.


That's what makes freedom to choose so great...

You're only 'racist' if you think you are superior because you are 'White'.

Resisting change makes you nostalgic, or just old.

Welcome to the globalist NWO! Courtesey of your socialist government, bringing the third world to your neighborhood. And of course, without your consent or even your input because after all, the government knows best.

Truth is I wouldn't worry about it. The people most likely to call you racist are racist themselves. Racism is just a by product of tribalism and humans are naturally tribal.....its a defense mechanism. And of course, your daughter is a product of her school's indoctrination wherein its been pounded into her head that all white males over the age of 25 are racist. Thats her problem, not yours. One day the elites will turn on her and she'll never see it coming.

My daughter and I were passing threw Ottawa the other day around 2 am. I needed gas and she called me racist because I drove by 7 gas stations until I found one with an attendant that wasn't sporting head gear.

Mainly I'm frustrated. I live in Kingston and over the last two years or so 90 percent of the gas stations and corner stores are now operated by people from India, same goes for the subway stores. No white people staffing them either, is that even legal? Now mac's milk stores are changing to circle K, what is that anyway?

For the longest time I had my favourite convience and gas store and enjoyed bantering with the staff, now new owners and everyone brown skinned, previous staff let go. After I make my purchase the new staff try to say 'have a good one', and when I say I have a good one just need a bigger one they have no idea what I'm talking about. Lol

It's just all the places I mostly frequented are now owned by either people from India or Chinese or there abouts, what's going on, white looking people have no money to buy these places?

I have no problem dealing with people one on one and would be the first one to pull my car over to assist ANY stranded motorist. Maybe I'm getting old and don't like change but that's it? If I'm more comfortable around people like myself am I racist, being aggravated by not having a choice in the matter.

I guess I should have posted this under RANT. lol. I guess my kids right

Go ahead, tell me I'm racist




Lol. Dude, you're totally racist. That this is surprising to you is kinda weird. Being aggravated because you don't get to "deal" with a certain race is pretty much the definition of racism 😂. Not only that, because I think everyone is at least a little racist, but you'll go to great lengths to inconvenience yourself in effort to discriminate against other races. Keep in mind, the rest of the world has to "deal" with you.

I have been accused of many things in my life, and am guilty of many of them.

When someone tells me I am _____, fill in the blank, I usually look at them as blankly as I can and reply "SO".
I figure if they can't deal with it maybe I want have to deal with them much longer.

"I am what I am and I don't give a _____."

I have lived far too long to get all hung up on semantics now.

Actually most Canadians are in favor of our immigration policy.

I just want things back the way the were in my little world. Lol

Is the world getting to dark for you?

The world changes, time goes on and nothing is stagnant. I try to speak with people about issues like wage stagnation and inflation of housing prices and a common response is "move where it's cheaper", I could be a dick and tell you to move somewhere you're more comfortable, but maybe you should just suck it up and get your gas pumped by a Sikh


Way to try to force your personal views on him. How about you do you and he can do him? You wanna talk to a Sikh about wage stagnation then go right ahead. If the OP don't want to, he can keep driving to the next store. Problem solved and no ideals are forced.

Yes you would be considered a racist,the way they portray Canadians they don't exist there,I'm in shock ,but you also truthfuly told the outcome of a socialist nation


Sorry to break it to you but we aren't a socialist nation. Maybe you should check tour facts before making up stuff. Funny how some people actually think that way because our government is liberal and we actually function as a nation together.

Anyway.
Op you sound pretty racist.
But, ever since I have grown up it's always been people who are not white working at those places.
But I live in southern Ontario if I go to Brampton white people are a minority.

You're judging strangers by their skin color & avoiding shopping with them strictly because of their skin color. Hmmm...

Put it like this, would you consider me racist if I only did business with "people of color"? If I refused to be served by light skinned people at stores & complained that the world was getting too pink/white/tan/blonde/freckled, would you consider me racist? Because that's how it sounds.


I wouldn't consider you racist if you did business with people like you, I would consider you normal. Refusing to be served at a store by people who don't look like you is a different level. I, personally, would consider that a prejudiced move.

I'd need to know more about you to define you as racist.

But refusing to shop at a store due to the ethnicity of the clerk does you no favours, the fact you drove to a multiple of stores looking for a white man certainly doesn't bode well in terms of how others would judge you.

Like and14263 alluded to on the first page, they're just people. Interact with them, they're only human. Base your judgments on their character not their ethnicity.

As he said, here in the UK most corner stores and garage stations are run by people of Asian ethnicity, some are scum, some are a great laugh... At the end of the day though, the milk is still pretty much the same price.

Why inconvenience yourself over something as trivial as skin colour?

Little kid is a great ice breaker.

Our grocery store has a pretty good track record of great staff of all cultures, and we've been shopping there pretty regularly for years now. They've watched our little boy grow up, and most everyone goes out of their way to be really friendly to him. And we are always nice and pleasant back. It works out great, and it's always nice to say hello to everyone when we go shopping.

Ultimately you breath the same atmosphere of those you seek to avoid and with those you attract to. So it is basically a situation of you looking within to see what the real issue may be. Since in one situation you try to avoid going to a gas station with brown hue men's yet in the end you are still spending your money with OPEC which consists of some brown hue men's also.
It is basically your perceptions of yourself as a human overall that can determine if you are truly racist...
