We live in a racist world, but the Delaware Department of Transportation is doing something about it: issuing a hilarious memo! Who wrote this, some "retard" "homo" "typical white person?" Below, the best idiot guidelines:
For LGBT Co-Workers:
I don't consider you gay.
This is insensitive.
Never call a coworker a "fag" or "homo."
This is derogatory, rude, and totally
For African-American Coworkers:
Should we order fried chicken or
watermelon for you?
This is stereotyping and shows ignorance.
For Asian Coworkers:
You must be the new IT person.
All Asians are not IT professionals.
Can you recommend a good Chinese
All Asians are not Chinese. Take some time
to study a world map. The world is made up
of continents with many countries, regions,
cultures, and sub-cultures.
For Older Coworkers:
You know Wal Mart is hiring.
This is not funny. An older employee has
experience you could benefit from.
For White Coworkers:

You are suggesting that all white people are
the same by putting them in the same
category. The behavior may have nothing to
do with the person's race. [Ed.: Many white people are assholes for other reasons than race!]
For Coworkers With Disabilities:
You don't need to date; your life will be
better without a woman/man causing you
Being disabled does not mean the person is
For Hispanic/Latino Coworkers:
Can you help me out with my landscaping?
Why would you assume that all
Hispanics/Latinos are landscaping experts?
