  • I don't think that it's right for your family to be saying what they said. Matter of fact, I think it was really wrong for them to do that. If I were you, I'd be upset as well. My kids are bi-racial, and I'd be LIVID if my family made fun of them. Stand up for yourself, and don't let that happen again.

  • If you are against racist jokes aimed at you, maybe you should rethink your stance on them all together. Honestly, I would have left as soon as they said that joke. I would have made it clear that I have no interest in hearing that kind of talk especially around my kids.

  • What kind of family do you have? For that matter, what makes you think racist jokes are ok as long as they're not directed at you? It's not ok, at all, ever. Tell them to stop or keep your kids away. Your attitude needs adjusting too.

  • You were not wrong, or over reacting!! That is terrible!! I would be so upset if someone said that to one of my kids/grandkids. Personally I don't like racist jokes, and sure don't want them told around my children.
