(I look nothing like him btw) so I waslike nah I've never heard that from anyone, so she goes to her friend like "Cheryl doesn't he look like Barack Obama?" and she looks at melike "No......he looks like Lebron James." [​IMG] and once I was done helping her, this +!+#$ had the nerve to say "Thanks Barack [​IMG] " [​IMG][​IMG]

    slighty racist if they were implying that all black ppl look alike.....but that was probably not their intention, they're just a couple of dumbbroads.....

    Drop the $#+@#%% race +%+% already. Everyone wants racism to end but you keep bringing race into everything and making it a topic.

    Nah, I don't think that's what they meant. And I assume that you're African-American right?

    You might often hear that to one race the other race "all look alike" but that's not a racist thing, its kinda true.

    Your eye gets trained to look for details and when you see something different your eyes aren't used to it and so you don't see the details. Idon't think it has anything to do with different races except that since most races/nationalities usually congregate together you're used to seeing thesame type of person.

    One of my best friends is Indian and it took me a few years of seeing his extended family to be able to remember who everyone was but now I know them all noproblem.

    So those ladies just aren't used to seeing black faces, they were probably just trying to be friendly and failed.
