I want to know if anyone has encountered "BLATANT" unmistakable racism. I can't emphasize BLATANT enough.

Does being spit on count as blatant?

yeah.  Not in law school (thank God) but yeah a few years back I was sitting in an auditorium for something and this bona fide red neck who was sitting behind me actually spit on my back and called me a f-ing ni&&a for really no apparent reason other than he had his friends with him and they thought it was funny.  Got ugly after that because little did he know I had my frat brothers there...

I've been called Mexican and told to go back to Mexico by a kid at my middle school once, even though I'm Puerto Rican.

I got to tackle him and almost broke his back when I did so during football practice.  It was great.
