Incidents of overt racism in everyday life

So I'm on a crowded bus this morning listening to my McCartney and Wings collection, and the guy opposite me asks me what I'm listening to so I tell him.
His response? "I tried listening to the Beatles, but it was too much like jungle music to me". he didn't lower his voice or look around to see if there was anyone around that might find his remark insensitive-he just loudly offered up his racist comment is if it were perfectly acceptable for public consumption.
