Subject: Racism . How one can defend it?

Everyone seems to be in such a hurry to scream 'racism' these days.

A customer asked, "In what aisle could I find the Sarson Da Tel?" (Mustard Oil)

The clerk says "are you a Sikh?"

The guy, clearly offended, says, "Yes I am. But let me ask you something.

If I had asked for Olive Oil, would you ask me if I was Italian?

Or if I had asked for Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German?

Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish?

Or if I had asked for a Taco, would you ask if I was Mexican?

Or if I asked for some Irish whiskey, would you ask if I was Irish?

The clerk says, "No, I probably wouldn't."

The guy says, "Well then, because I asked for Sarson Da Tel, why did you
ask if I am a Sikh?"

The clerk replied, "Because sardarji, you're in a Liquor Store."
