Just curious to know if Russians experience any kind of racism in America from Americans (living here from century)? Reason for asking this question is that America and Russia have always been on the opposite sides.

      Thank you. But those can be equally hurtful.

      the people willing to hurt usually aren’t smart enough to make jokes truly hurtful; just annoying

    Nothing notable until Obama’s second term. Then the identity politics went completely off the rails and everyone got put into a little bucket with a label on it. Because we’re white, we all went in the white bucket. So we get to hear every day how privileged we are and how we’re the racists who enslaved Black people. There are so many levels on which that is wrong...

      Great point! But, one cannot shed his/her last name? Russian last names are very different from last names of regular Americans (Johnson, Brown, Black, White, Perry etc..)

      Hmm! Change last name? Although, on the coasts no one really cares.

    Don’t think so. We don’t mess with Russians out of fear of Russian Mafia connection. They’re a tough nut to crack socially and tend to keep to themselves. Wouldn’t mind getting to know some Russians better.

    Reverse racism. Our president worships Russians, esp. Russians with money. In SF there is a decent Russian community and they fit in well.

    Whatever they experience wouldn't be called racism.

      Not necessarily true, tons of Russians work in KC. Lots went to the Colleges here. I was a a part of a few Russian groups. No one has ever been less than friendly to them that I have seen.
