So a drunk hobo at Hauptbahnhof yells at somebody... and that's worth discussing? That's what they do all day.

Tom,
The politically correct question has recently been agreed upon.

It is:-
"Excuse me, which planet do you come from?"

The Martians were of course outvoted in this.
The Saturnians abstained,
and some Earthians accepted a nominal bribe

But nobody was offended
If somebody is "racist" against farmers, does that make them a pharmacist?

You make it sound like that is a fashion that may come and go. High-vis SBB jackets (giving free travel) never go out of fashion

Hoboken has gone all posh now- gentrified- it does not happen like that anymore but you can still buy really nice canolli there (most hobos where Italians then- like Sinatra).

Can we not just get to discussing "black" being a thick concept?

I'd say it was more classist than racist Tom ;D
What is the difference between classist and racist?

My take on it is that there is a difference but not much.

Jokes aside of course (mission impossible).
