All he could do was smile like a goof and be "positive" because it's taboo for short men to stand up for ourselves. He would've been "sensitive" and "overreacting" if he talked back. Remember, short men with dignity are insecure. Secure short men take it up the ass.
Funny word swaps from where I found the video:
"Victor you looked like you were Irish white on that stage"
"Victor you had the commanding presence of a white man"
"whoever said race matters never met you, because that was incredible and because of the race difference it didn't even matter"
Another good quote:
"Don't forget: being praised for seeming taller is supposed to be a compliment for us."
I guess had Victor's personality been better and he exuded more confidence, he might've had a chance. After all, nobody cares about height.
