My dad and step mom took us to breakfast today. Anway, they said before we left...now just so you know there is a black waitress there and we always hug her neck. I said okay.....not a problem. She said well we just like to tell people in case they wonder why. I said. uhm, that's not a problem for us.
SMH, I don't get it...so what? Hug who you want.
I never knew my dad was a bit racist until these later years...it isn't like he discriminates but it is little comments like above. Or, well he is black but he is nice or....now she's a black woman but she is good at........
I don't remember him being that way when I grew up. He was in the military and so we grew up to be accepting of all races, religions etc. It was just a part of life. I never knew he had these tendencies, unless it is my step mom's influence throughout their 18 years of marriage...??? could that be it or could he have hid these tendencies all my life.
People are people, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation etc...I just don't get it.
