So if I dislike certain parts of a culture that makes me racist?

No, I don't think it does. We seem to have collectively confused racism (bias against a race) with bias against countries, nationalities, cultural practices, and religions. None of which have anything to do with race.

A buddy told me there is a similar scene at Costco when they put out free samples.

It's worse than the salt giveaway.

why do they use salt? its terrible on cars, and has a freezing point. In the interior they just use sand, and while it is messy during thaw, it is effective for getting traction.

Plus, sand would quickly wash away with the spring rain. And it doesnt pollute water. And its free and requires no processing or packaging or long distance transportaion. And it eventually returns to the beach with zero effort.

actualy you gotta sweep all the sand [HTML_REMOVED] gravel up, up here they sweep the roads in the spring so there is no point in replacing your broken windsheild until they do and there is probaly no point in replacing it anyhow cuz it will be broken again by november

Always reminds me of seagulls fighting over a bag of chips. It's so pathetic.

Chinese are so fn annoying.

Most white guys who've spent any time in lower mainland either agree with me, or will call me a racist and still secretly agree with me.
