I don't know how accurate the numbers are (...about 8.5 per cent of couples in the Lower Mainland are in mixed unions more than double the national figure of four per cent), but I do see quite a few mixed couples in the Lower Mainland. We may choose an area to live in based on race, but not necessarily true when choosing our partners.

This kind of behaviour is childish, but I see it so much in people I used to article with, mid to late 20 yr olds, professionals, fucking immature as hell - to me doing that is promoting segregation
If I'm not dealing with them, I don't care what language they speak (at home or in public)
But it's pretty frustrating when they don't speak a word of English and demand fast and speedy service.

Was working at a computer shop, a Chinese family came up to buy a laptop which was no problem (my non-cantonese speaking cashier was dealing with them) There was a problem (at no fault of the cashier) and due to their language barrier,the family started insulting the cashier (Calling her retarded and stupid and a bitch) in cantonese right in front of her. I had to step in and defuse the situation, but I had to start it with "Don't think I don't know what you're saying."

ON THE FLIP SIDE... Some Caucasians still feel self-rightous and superior over other ethnicities. Same store @ closing time, Caucasian storms in demanding service over an item she broke. Asian co-worker comes and tries to explain what happened and why she can't just TAKE a new one off the shelf. She tries to steal it twice. Manager comes and observes, asian co-worker explains in perfect english the problems with her product. She goes off on a rant saying she can't understand him through his 'chinese' and starts mocking the chinese language and how we're nothing but immigrants taking all the jobs.

I know, cool stories. Want me to tell it again?

But just goes to show that ethnic segregation isn't always on the fault of those with colour, even in such a diverse city like Vancouver.
