After spending 20+ years working in the entertainment business I've worked at all manner of ethnic events. Everything from ultra-expensive, over produced, East Indian and Lebanese weddings, to rap concerts and Caribbean shows. Huge diverse groups of people, from ultra obscenely rich to flat out poor.
Most of the people there treated our crew like shit when interacting with us. Rich or poor, they down looked on us with contempt. Very clear they were extremely racist to anyone not of their own race. Some of my regular customers were different, because often we would become quite friendly to one another after working together on so many occasions. Some relationships would span years. It wouldn't change the attitudes of the guests much, but at least the promoters and event organizers would be easier to deal with.
We always felt like strangers in a strange land. After looking back on those days, I found the Arabic or Eastern Indians to be the worst of the bunch. Not only because of race, but because of their financial status as well. When someone spends $250,000.00 on a wedding it is clear the white people working it were far beneath them.
Yes, racism is alive and well and its hardly a white phenomenon. If you ask me, at least most white people give a shit and try to be accepting to other races. The other races don't give a shit or consider it their right to hate us.
