Has anyone ever said anything or done anything when they were younger or recently where they offended some people and you had no idea?

When I was about 7 me and my 10 year old brother were at this beach where if you dug in the sand far down enough it would go black. So me and my brother covered ourselves in Black sand and ran around the beach announcing to everyone we were "Black Fellas" and "Blackies".

Also when i was around 8 years old I was at school playing soccer on the oval and some girls wanted to play and i said to them "shouldn't you be making me a sandwich".

When I was at my babysitters house, she asked me to help with the washing and I told her:

and proceeded to get an ice block and watch TV. I was about 5 years old.

Most people say that, but it is true i remember getting told off by the teacher and learning about sexism and how it is wrong. i think it is hilarious but thinking back i had no idea it was that bad to say.

I was at the football one night earlier this season, and we were sitting behind this black guy who seemed to be on holiday from another country or something and I guess the people he was with were taking him out to see our national sport.

One of my team's best players is called Cooney, and he ****ed up at some point and the other team kicked a goal.

Not thinking, I screamed out "You're ****ing ****, Cooney!"

The guy sitting in front of me turned around and looked like he was going to kick the **** out of me, and I realised that he wouldn't have known that I was yelling at the player and not him.

Never have I backtracked so fast. Lucky he was with people who could explain, or I would've been in some serious pain.

Say it with anger and a southern accent and the hate really comes through.

"What. The. Fuck did you just say?!'
'Aaaargh... He's a player... Look, Cooney - See... One of our players... Please don't kill me"

We have a very casual approach to racism amongst my mates (as in... we relentlessly take the piss out of each other). When I went over to my mate's uni a while back, I was talking to one of his house mates and let a comment slip out... I realised as soon as I said it and had a look of 'oh bollocks' across my face, he laughed though.

Everyone loves a bit of discriminatory humour

Well, for one thing, I was on XBL with a few Yanks, one of them a black chap. We went on to accuse him of killing a policeman (on GTAIV) for a laugh, and he vehemently denied it. Eventually, one of the people I was playing with got so fed up with the argument he just said "let's lynch him!" Meaning lynch in its true sense - an execution with no trial. Of course, in that context...

My Aunt and uncle are hectically racist and unfortunately they raised their kids that way to.
One day My aunt was shopping with my 4 year old cousin (boy). A black woman near the till looked at him and commented on how cute he was. She bent down to his hight while saying this. He then said: "Dont touch me! I dont want to be black!".
My aunt said it was the most embarrassing moment of her life.-Her face just went red.
I say good. She (my aunt) fuc*ing deserves it. She's so flippen stupid. Its just a shame that my cousins are raised to have that kinda mentallity.

My Dad tried to teach me to be racist. Hopefully your cousins will learn better as time goes on.

I think the only time for me was when a fairly large group of black people walked past me and one of them made the black power sign at me. I thought it was just a kind of greeting so jokingly did it back. Luckily they just laughed at me and walked away.
