He said what??

My MIL was telling me a story about her most favorite grandchild EVER the other day and this is pretty much how the story went..

"On his first day of 2nd grade his black teacher was saying goodbye to all of them and giving them a hug before they left. He told her "No I don't touch brown people." Haha it was the cutest thing"

I was like WHAT??? How is this cute.. AT ALL? That''s offensive and could have really gotten him into trouble. This kid is 8 years old, but is so spoiled it is unreal and acts as if he is 4. We are used to hearing about how cute he is, but this one is just bizarre! How would you feel if your child said something like this?

  • Yeah I'd tell me child why that was inappropriate and one day if he doesn't watch it, he's gonna get a well deserved black eye from someone who didn't like what he said in a few years.

  • I don't understand how that is cute at all. If your MIL thinks it's cute, that might explain where the attitude came from.

  • I'd be mortified (and very sad)

  • He learned it somewhere... If Grandma thought it was funny then I guess we know where.
