If your skin is white and you still noticed some weirdness, that should tell you something... My wife was in some rural part of Oregon about 10 years ago for a work project and said she got nasty stares from the white woman in the lounge of here hotel...she felt the racist aura of that place.

Burbs and rural Oregon is a whole different level. I've been yelled at for being a terrorist while driving my car... presumably because I was in a Prius??? I look a little Semitic when I have a tan? Still have no clue.
