I had something similar happen once. When I was about thirteen, my cat disappeared and so I went door to door in my neighborhood. One of the houses was this little old seemingly innocent white woman. She told me "The ni---rs probably took your cat." WTF! I just remember standing there with a stunned expression on my face. Kind of an eye opener because sometimes you get complacent and start thinking "there isn't as much racism today" or "people are more enlightened/intelligent today". HA! The worst part is a lot of times it comes from people you would not expect to hear it from.
