During a discussion about racism on The News Hour (PBS) a guest commentator....

....said that it is racist when you ask someone "where are you from?", if they appear to be foreign in speech or appearance. How do you feel about this? I ask the question all the time because it gives me the opportunity to learn about other people and the places that they have come from. Most immigrants, I think, love their home countries and enjoy telling you about them. I'll admit that I have very occasionally been met with some hesitancy, but I usually say something like "I hope that we've made you feel welcome" and don't believe that I've offended anyone.

So the loss was 1.7%.
