I know the definition of racist and this ain't it. To further illustrate my comment about the Asian population in the Phoenix area - it is my belief that the PHX approach controllers can sometimes have a bad attitude because they have to repeat themselves several times to one student and that, several times a day, because of certain flight schools in the area that cater to mostly Asian student pilots. I think that the controllers do a great job of interpreting what the students are trying to say but I'd bet a lot of them are going bald from pulling their hair out in the effort. As an English speaker it is sometimes very difficult just getting through to ATC because they spend so much time with the Asian students. That isn't racist, its just a fact.
