I've been in Canada for a year and a half now. Since it's Montreal and I'm "brown", I think I'm clear of the race wars that the minority of white and black people engage in, with the key word being minority. And I guess the people here are more mature than to assume "brown" people are terrorists, I'm free from that as well.
The only thing I find amusing is how people decide to contest with each other with their tribalism. If it's not black, white, brown or yellow(who chose that one for east Asians?), then it's English be french, or Irish Vs British, or Indian Vs Pakistani, or even smaller, and I'm sure most here won't get it, Baloch Vs Punjabi, or Notkani Vs Qaisrani.
People love to create groups and make sweeping overgeneralizations based on it. The problem is when you start basing merit or worth on it or start taking it seriously.
Like someone seriously believing all white people are privelleged and hate minorities. Or someone else thinking all black people are criminals and thugs.
The problem of being over sensitive might be a problem with an over sensitive person, or they might've just dealt with a lot of shit that day and are angry and go to the worst conclusions. The problem is you can't judge people based on anecdotal evidence and chance encounters. The best you can do is not get mad, maybe even smile or laugh about it and move on with your day. Or you CNA just clear the misunderstanding up and if they still don't believe it, then they might have some problem but again, you can't really do anything about it.
It is an interesting phenomena to observe in humans though.
Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also
