    I study abroad and I have never encountered this in England. Basically, there's this german guy in my university and he seems inherently racist. I've heard that he's been going around and casually using the N-word. A lot of people have actually addressed him and said it isn't acceptable. I haven't heard him say it myself, but I feel really angry that he keep repeating it and thinks it's okay.

    I'm not black but I've also been called a few racist words myself, just because I look Arab.

    I honestly feel to corner him one day, in an attempt to educate him.

    And of course, I've known people to be racist but they're usually closet.

    Ignore it if you can, if you can its good to accept people can think as negative things as they like but the positive things people think of you will always outweigh the negative.

    If you can't then engage him in a conversation about it in front of a large group of people who are likely to disapprove of his viewpoint and then play your own opinions down so people in said group are more accepting of yours(ie you go middle instead of left to his right. then you will find people will fight your battle for you once they are on your side and set mentally against him. (yes its a bit evil and hard to do)

    Do you really think that you "educating" him is going to make any difference?
