You’re Sexist And Racist! And You Don’t Even Know It

-

By Shubhani Syal

In a world that is so fast and where we are exposed to so much information everyday, you would think we would know when we’re being racist and/or sexist and rectify it. But that’s not the case. Whether in the form of jokes or stereotypes, we’ve being conditioned to be prejudiced.

It’s embedded in our thinking, our everyday comments. Whether a general comment, or said for helping women be “safe”, an advice or maybe trying to compliment someone, we’re saying inappropriate things every day.

So here are some things we say without even realising that we’re being racist and/or sexist. Keep a tally of how many of these you’ve said to check out your prejudice score!

BUT?!

 

Racism knows no state boundaries

 

Okay your honour

 

Dark is not beautiful? Try a dark chocolate

 

 

Be a lady and kick him in the balls

 

Did you also issue her a license for that?

 

Because Punjabis are born with a bottle

 

Be like chotu

 

Wo kutta nhi, tommy hai

 

Hope I made you uncomfortable with this series.
