  • Why do you feel bad? I dont understand why you would. It's not your fault that they wanted to exclude white people.. I wonder how they would feel if you were throwing a baby shower and said all the hispanics/spanish people were not invited. I'm sure they'd be up in arms. Did they say why no white people were allowed by chance?

  • Well, she doesn't need any white people's gifts then, does she? Take what you were going to spend on her and get yourself a nice treat, and forget about it.

  • sadly, race is still a common problem. while it isnt right, it isnt your fault and you shouldnt feel bad. if you have been good friends with this family, maybe she had a reason to not invite you because youre white. maybe she has some racist family members and didnt want to cause a problem? i would tell her that you were hurt you werent invited, and maybe ask her if there was a reason.
