My boyfriend is an international student from an Asian country. He came to te US for about 2 years ago. He often encounters dumb racist people. They said rude things to him but he never stand up for himself. For example one time this rude starbuck's cashier gave him a hot coffee when he ordered a cold one, then rolled her eyes on him when he said she gave him the wrong one. Then she said "You know, just drink the damn coffee, the weather is cold you don't need a cold drink" then he said "Ohh okay" and took the hot drink. I told him next time don't do that, just tell her to go make the coffee again it's her fault she made the wrong one. Then he told me "No it's alright I don't want to be rude. Maybe she's right it's just coffee..." This is just ONE in a million example. He's scared of everyone and won't speak up for himself. What can I do now? I don't want to see people stepping all over him.
My boyfriend is afraid of everyone?

You may have to step in stand up for him initially. Show him how it's done. Let him know he is worthy of respect and you believe he has it within himself to show others he deserves respect.0

He doesn't have a backbone. One day he will, when he is forced to stand up for himself. For example what the cashier said to him is unacceptable. That passiveness won't be helpful in a country like America. Id have collected her name and shamed her and Starbuck for the world's lousiest customer experience and encourage people not to go there at all. 😅😎0
