CASUAL RACISM: A CONVERSATION WITH MY BROTHER

I don't know what to offer here. This just happened, so now I'm just sitting in my chair, quietly brewing. My family has always been problematic when it comes to racist comments/etc., and I try to pushback whenever I can, but rn I'm ???
  1. Context: We flipped over to the Olympics, and badminton is on. USA vs China
  2. Brother: "Are these guys [the USA team] even Americans?"
  3. Me: "…are you serious?"
  4. Brother: "Look at their last names!!"
  5. Me: "That's seriously not even relevant."
  6. Brother: "They look like they're on the same team [as the Chinese team]."
    Note: one of them has darker/brown skin, and they are obviously not the same ethnicity
  7. Me: "That guy is obviously not Chinese…"
  8. Brother: "Well they're obviously not Americans."
  9. Me: "OBVIOUSLY THEY ARE BECAUSE ALL SORTS OF PEOPLE LIVE IN AMERICA."
    Internally and externally 😡😡😡
  10. That was the end of the conversation.
  11. I honestly can't believe I just had to explain this? Or participate in this dialogue? Or witness this type of ignorance? FROM MY OLDER BROTHER?
    I can't believe we're related wtf
  12. I'm done. I'd like to be excluded from this family narrative 🙃🙃🙃
