Happened to me too, and it sucked. I had big thick glasses, and was...me. Didn't go over well until I got contact lenses and filled out in middle school.

Why? I think it is fair to say that he can be entirely successful, and also feel the effects of racism. Success does not erase racism, at least as far as I know.

If he is playing with a 3-some (on the golf course), and two of the guys treat him normally, and the third guy treats him like a racist jerk, then he has experienced racism. The appropriate behavior of the other two does not change the fact that the third was being a jerk.

Racism does not depend upon you paying other people. That would be some kind of organized crime scheme. Racism will end when everybody doesn't act racist. That will be a LONG time from now, as near as I can tell, because EVERYBODY acts racist every once in a while. It's pretty darn deep in our culture, and I don't see it leaving anytime soon.
