I'm pretty sure ignoring is not the correct thing in this case. It's the correct thing to do only if you believe racism is justified, in which case there's probably something wrong with your thinking. Just because something keeps happening doesn't make it right and ignorable.

I ignore it in a sense that I walk away from it when I can because giving some things attention only makes it worse.  And  sometimes there is nothing you can do but serve by example.  I know what I'm talking about.  I've faced racism from whites, blacks, and Asians.  In fact, I faced racism from blacks just a month ago.

Really, the best way is to just don't give a fuck. The reason why racists throw pejoratives at minorities is because they know the insults bother them. I was called a communist a few times because I'm of Chinese (actually Taiwanese) descent and I just respond with "eh" as I shrug my shoulders.
