    I live in Scandinavia. Arguably slightly less obsessed with racism than good ol’ USA. (When watermelons and fried chicken is racism, then you’re obsessed with it.)

    Anyway, the fun thing was that the darker the skin of the people I met, the more afraid of my dog they were. My dog was always friendly and non-threatening, but he still scared the crap out of all the African immigrants.

    I’m not quite sure what to think of that. He was black as the night, and a Poodle!

    When you think that objecting to racist stereotyping is being “obsessed”, or that black people being afraid of your dog is “a fun thing”, then you’re racist.
