Nobody's putting words in your mouth. But when you jump into a discussion and make a blanket statement, you must be prepared to receive counter examples from the discussions that has already been taking place.

I am sorry you have had to go through all of this. Discrimination is absolutely disgusting. I have faced discrimination a few of times myself because of skin color. While you can change your accent and clothes to avoid discrimination, I don't have the luxury of changing my skin color, nor would I want to in order to appease a few jerks in the society. However, I do understand what you had to go through and why you tool the steps you took in order to avoid this nuisance, and I appreciate it.

Glad that you get the point I was trying to make.
