Do people do things that work your nerves? My top irritation. When people feel a need to "urbanize" their speech around you. There you are communicating intelligently and someone is speaking to you ghetto, low-classed, thinking that's "cool." You want to look like at that person and shake your head. That is not cool. It does not show "you're down" but it shows that you are incapable of viewing people as a unique individual and not a mirror of your misconceptions/stereotypes about people of color. I can do nothing more than look at the person and think....Jack *ss! What bothers you?

Amen, LOL. Religion and politics-the two topics that are most forbidden that allow the participants to become hostile, overbearing, and creates harsh feelings and assumptions about others. Way to keep conversation light at the dinner table.
