Question for mothers of interracial children.

Posted by   + Show Post
Do you push for your child to befriend one race over another?
Do you find it's easier to relate to one race than another?


The reason I ask, is my niece has a friend. She is white. She was hurt by a white man when she was little and refuses to see any white man as anything other than a child molester.

She has a child whose father is black.
Now she only wants her child at a school with 75% or more AA ratio.
She only invites black or mixed children to parties. She goes on every field trip to insure that her daughter isn't put as a bus buddy with a white child. I find this odd, and a bit outlandish. But I don't know if that's normal?

yeah I thought it was pretty dumb.. I did have to step away from the pc for a minute before I replied with some really ugly comments, I am not by any means racist I think all babies are beautiful but this woman's whole attitude just really got under my skin.

My daughter goes to the school we are zoned for. She makes her own friends, draws her own conclusions about race (which at 5, are few) and I don't push any of it on her.

That's not normal. And the only people I care about my child being friends with are bad influences and they come in all colours.

DD is white and middle eastern.
She plays with any race of kids.
But she does naturally favor her middle eastern side. She thinks she is 100% Arab.
But there aren't many Arab kids around us though.

No.  My son can be friends with whoever he wants.  I relate better to AA's because of where I live (in NC) IRR's are kinda frowned upon.  As far as Naeem goes he can choose who he relates to better when he gets older.  He's 5 right now so he doesn't see color therefore he has friends of every color of the rainbow.

IMO she will push her child to the one thing she is most scared of. I've seen it on other issues not just in a skin color issue. Children tend to try things mom or dad say are no nos just to see if they can get by with it. I know I did. Mommy and daddy said drinking and smoking pot was bad but I still got drunk and high at 14. Not saying its right cause by no means is it right. You just need to set her down and talk to her about why its wrong.
