    DC player- Frankly l don't give a rat's $^//&** what you think. Both you and the other character turned this subject into what it was not intended to be. 

    You cannot tell me that both of you have never displayed stereotypically behavior,  you darn well know that if you said that you have not- you would be liars. So just stop this Knights in Shinning Armor behavior, your behavioral traits are not divine, you don't walk on water & don't be so thin skinned -  as someone in the movies once said " don't get attached to things".

    As for the re-mark on 3 posts in 4 years, that was said in jest, if you took offense to that statement- have another beer.

    Classic straw man fallacy at work here. I'm not a knight and shining armor and I have never claimed to be one. I'm not claiming to be perfect but I call out BS when I see it. You are blaming me and DC for turning the subject into something it was not intended to be but that blame falls squarely on your shoulders not ours. The article was posted and most of the other commenters were talking about what a shame it was that this customer was taken advantage of and I agree with them. I took no issue with the other commenters.

    But you went above and beyond the other commenters, you made a comment about the likely surname of the store owner of RD's Deli and Market in Melrose, Massachusetts. That's what happens when you make gross generalizations and perpetuate stereotypes, sooner or later you're going to get caught.

      I've read the articles. Yes, there are dishonest East Indians just like there are dishonest whites, blacks, asians and hispanics. Taking these cases where East Indian store owners have ripped people off and playing them up for laughs paints a broad and unflattering brush over an entire community. For every East Indian store owner who has ripped someone off, how many other store owners of different ethnicities have ripped people off too but we never hear any jokes about them do we?

      Had you read the articles before making assumptions about racism I doubt you would have posted the same remarks.

      Two or three, coincidence. When the same name is involved in so many lottery scams it's wither being used as an alias or is a red flag for anyone asking someone else to check their tickets.

      Patel might be a very common name in India, but so is Smith in the U.S. There's not a whole bunch of smiths involved in such scams.

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

          How many Smiths were involved in screwing lottery players over their winnings? do tell.

          People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.

            When it comes to lottery tickets you got to keep your eye on everyone.  I consider everyone honest where I buy my tickets but the other day I used the drive thru to buy $10 worth of MM tickets using two marked play slips and the clerk acted like he ran my slips and then handed them back to me with two tickets and said that will be $12.  He tried to sell me two tickets with 3 lines with the megaplier and claimed the terminals must had misprinted my tickets.  I suspect he had some mistakes and were trying to dump them off on me, had he only said $10 I would have never checked those tickets.  Now I back to walking in and watching them run my tickets.

              The store owner's last name wasn't Patel. The mentally challenged customer recieved her winnings! Really! She got her money! All this hate over a topic! Other  readers would love to read articles and post positive comments thank you! A hit dog hollers!

                I believe we were talking lottery scams.

                If you want to go the route you took, in many embezzlement, check kiting, hanging paper scams, etc...a commonly used named is I.M. Rich.

                  I used to work in a liquor store while going back to school a few years ago and one of the girls I worked with took a check signed "U.R. Stuck".

                      The store owners name no longer matters and it looks like the fact they sold lottery tickets to a "mentally disabled woman" who was intelligent enough to find the $950 payoff "fishy" doesn't matter either.

                      Just checked the Mass Lottery website for the name of the woman in the story, but found they don't room for measly $10,000 winners because of all the $1 million winners.

                        yes, I know about the articles and I feel the same way as I did before. My position has not changed. I judge people on a case by case basis. Their own actions dictate how I treat them.

                        As far as lottery scams are concerned, I trust no one with my tickets, this includes Patels, Smiths, Changs, or Martinez. I manually check my tickets myself and I already know what my ticket is worth before handing it to anyone else.

                            You are grasping at straws now. A username is just a username. I'm not royalty. I choose the, "prince" part of my username as a joke and no, I'm not going any where. You have no right to tell me to stay or leave. You do not own Lottery Post. I have as much right to be here as you or anyone else.

                              as far as me judging people based on their own actions is concerned. I leave you with a famous quote:

                              "I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." -MLK

                              Judging people based on their own actions is part of determining the content of their character. I don't buy into stereotypes. I treat people the same regardless of skin color and I don't read a news article about a crime that has been committed and then insinuate a person with an East Indian surname must have committed the crime.

                              That is what you did. The article in this thread talks about a heinous crime of a store owner ripping off a customer and what do you do? You jump to the conclusion that someone in the East Indian community is responsible for the heinous crime. A conclusion I have already demonstrated as false.

                              I labeled you as a racist based on your action but if you don't want to accept that label that is fine with me. That's up to you. But remember if another news article is posted about a crime being committed, I would want to think twice about insinuating the ethnicity of the perpetrator. Saying someone of a particular community is responsible for the crime before all evidence has come out would make me look racist in most people's eyes.
