Some thoughts on how I’ve dealt with petty jabs, or subtle racist things:
First, when people make these weird references to Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee, Martial arts, kung fu or karate, etc.… follow your gut. Sometimes people say to be friendly and genuine, often times they are essentially doing this;
They are trying to discount you, or take a petty jab at you, or trying to bully you.
So how should you respond?
First and foremost, don’t let it fly. My personal recommendation, is confront them, be a little bit assertive and aggressive, but in a friendly cordial way. Often times joking is a good idea.
Then, you start to converse with them. You ask them leading questions, open ended questions, and you asked them the first and last name. And you stick out your hand and shake their hand, and you introduce yourself. You bridge the gap.
