I was listening to a radio station in which a deejay made a prank call to a guy. So while they were squabbling, this guy replied “You are **r**a**c**e** from where? Your tongue-twisting technique is very good.”
This is not the first time I listened to such remark. I have heard it in the workplaces, within my neighborhood, random strangers in the coffee shops…
When I just moved into the current place, the landlady told me that the next-door neighbor asked her not to lease the house to **r**a**c**e**. Alright, I bet she would not tell me about purported request if I was a/an **r**a**c**e**, would she?
An auntie living across the street once complained to me that some **r**a**c**e** boys always teasing Shorty, making him to bark incessantly. But he is easily agitated by anyone especially those walking with their furkids (read: dog) anyway.
Does it affect me? I mean the **r**a**c**e** thing.
Honestly, I become very cautious when I have to deal with **r**a**c**e**. Except the young boys who bring Rascal to see Shorty almost every day. The friendly brothers are very polite and greet me “Hello auntie!” every time they see me.
