My family is racist & they don't hide it. I hate it and refuse to subject my 4 year old DD to it. DH, DD, and I were visiting for a few days last week from out of state (we live in OH, they in SC) and they openly discussed their bigotry like it was something to be proud of even dropping the "N word" several times. I objected and complained and threatened to leave early...finally we did leave early after another "N word" bomb, but only by an hour or two.
I was told later by my father that they are the way they are and they are not going to change for anyone while in their home. I responded "Then when we visit again we'll stay in a hotel and they can come spend a day at the beach with us and have a nice dinner." So then I'm told that I'm disrespectful in believing that they should be anyone but themselves and that if I can't show them "total respect" they will not be in my presence.
What the heck am I supposed to do with this?
