You're right. The couple could have been racist.

You can call it racism or prejudice or another label. I simple was implying that yes it could have been but it could have been the black couple having something against a white person. And you cannot say that doesn't happen.

Read the rest of my commets and ask if they go along with what you think I meant? No, the don't. Now read it how I intended it. Yes, they do. I may not always phrase something the best way and I might offend people not on purpose but I don't see anything comical or to joke about when race is involved.

But that in and of itself is not racism.
