I got out of my car to let the guy take over, and the first thing he asks me is what my boots symbolize. Confused, I asked him for clarification. He said that my boots were a racist symbol. He sounded like he was joking, so I said no, they just stand for "I like boots." He kept going on about how he didn't know if I was a skinhead or not because I have these boots. I again played it off like he was joking. I figured his conversation was odd, but not execptionally so. The people I hang out with, being white is a minority. I'm one of 2 white servers at work, and my friends are mostly Asian. Joking about race is standard for us (ie: my boyfriend can fight on the ceiling because he is Asian.).
My car failed e-check, which irritated me because it passed really well last time, and I just put $700 worth of work into it. Now that I'm thinking about it, I wonder if the guy failed my car because I'm white and had these "racist boots." I'm going to get it re-checked in a better area next time, where I am not going to be called racist because of what I'm wearing.
