Racial question?

One of the foreign exchange students said she hated it here and I asked her why she was here and she told our boss she never said anything but they always do. No big deal but does this make me racist because I asked her then why are you here?

  • Well, it sounds like she's a foreign exchange student. Generally they visit another country to experience what it's like, how its different, what's the same...

    Why does she have to love it? She's probably stuck here until her tour ends. I'd be more interested in knowing why she hated it. Maybe it's because she's young and misses her family and friends...? Sounds like a reasonable reaction to me.

  • I'd wonder, too. If she hates it here, why doesn't she go back home? Does she HAVE to finish out the program here if she hates it so much? I also wonder what she's doing, not necessarily wrong, but it's not fair for her to say it's all the fault of Americans as to why she hates it here so much, ya know?

    I think you were just trying to have a conversation with her. What's wrong with that? Do they not do that in her country?

  • No, it doesn't make you racist, but I'd be curious why she hates it. Maybe someone said something bad to her or she had an experience that was less than great. Maybe she misses her family and friends. Who knows.

  • I think it was an honest question...certainly not racist. Maybe she is homesick. I remember "hating" college about midway through my first semester. I wanted my Momma!

  • I'd wonder as well why one would be here if they hated it so much.
