racism on cafemom

does it piss anyone else off on some of the racist things people say on here? i will never understand it! its ridiculous! i mean this is a whole new century! i so wish it wasnt ar0und anymore! im spanish, white, german, & native american; im engaged [and about to have a child with] a black guy. my family isn't racist & has accepted him, but my dad on the other hand kicked me out when i was 15 just fore dating him! this is why i feel so much anger toward racism. am i the only person who thinks this? or am i 'over reacting'??

  • I totally agree with you. I hate the fact that people have to be so ignorant.

  • nope, definitely not the only person.. I have a mixed dd as well :).

    I also notice the obviously prejudices attitudes toward other groups of people on here because of certain individuals based on religion and sexual orientation. Some people are just plain sick, and it's really sad.

  • I've been surprised at the casual way several people here have tossed race around -- on each side of the issue. I try to stay out of those conversations.

  • i see it, i experience it outside of cafemom, but i just take it as pure ignorance. I feel bad for people like that because they miss out on some really wonderful people by being so ridiculous.

    Even though it happens I usually just go about my day, if i get mad or show emotion it gives them pleasure, If I forgive them and move on my day is better and I dont dwell on it, its just another dumbass flapping their lips because they can.

    if that makes sense.

  • well, 2mothershelpers you are one lucky cafemommer!! I don't know how many mean, racist things I have encountered on this site. It saddens me! What's even worse is that it's from all sides of the spectrum! It doesn't matter what race the person is, I have seen racism abound on here!
