I was asked this or yelled at by a man in the store today! Why..... well it is ALL OVER the check stands in the store on a "news weekly" I think it was. Now my husband was pissed! He told him NO! I said to the man calmly I gave birth to this child How could he be racist? My son loves everyone regardless of color! I pretty sure he doesn't even notice anyone's flaws or differences! I hate what BULL they put on the covers!
Does stuff like this set you off?
BTW the man asked us over and over! (he was white.)

my son doesnt see "race." All he know is that he is light brown and that some ppl are beige, and some are dark brown. He was asking me this question a few weeks ago on a Marta train and everyone that heard him just smiled. Kids are not born that way they are taught. My kids will never understand what that means to "be," and neither will I.

I am still confused. My daughter doesn't care what you look like, to say she can't see differences is just ignorant. Of course she knows mommy is "Peach" and daddy is "Brown"...of course this is according to a 6 year old with a box of Crayola...her one friend is Apricot. Well, anyway she is more interested in knowing your ethnicity because she thinks cultures are really neat. So she will ask someone what they are and if they say "White." She will say "No! Like what are you? I'm Irish and Spanish!" Being able to differentiate is not a bad thing. The bad part is when you believe because you are a certain race or ethnicity you are better than everyone else or when you believe a certain race or ethnicity is beneath you. Realizing people are different is normal.
