    It's funny though how if one is uncomfortable around people with 'asian accents' then that behaviour is so-called racist

    It's also funny how white people aren't the only ones that can have cockney accents...nice try.

    Well I guess it's because that is a race.

    It's like saying, "Is it racist if I hate peopled with tattooed skin?" and I said "it's not a race" and you say "It's funny though how if one is uncomfortable around people with black skins then that behaviour is so-called racist".

    Nice try? Didn't say I was uncomfortable, am 1/4 asian myself. My point was that there's a fair bit of inequality when it comes to racial slurs

    If one is uncomfortable around a particular accent that doesn't necessarily mean they hate that particular race

    You could say that about the skin one too but it definitely seems that way. Hating a race isn't the only way to be racist though.

    You can be rude to someone without hating them.

    How?

    The point is, the Asian accent is exclusive to Asian people whereas white, black and Asian people have the cockney accent.
