Did you know zebra is a racist term? I do now. My 11 year old daughter was suspended from school for saying this to a girl who was teasing her. When i told the principal that it was insane that she meant it that way he saix iwas supporting her racism. Againi did not even know this was a racist term. So my question to all of you is was i wrong for not bringi.g my kids up knowing this stuff?xdid i drop the ball on this one? Noneof my kids knew racist terms before this crap. And the worst part is i taught my kids race or religion or anything like that doez not define a person. I raised my kids we are human beings and all equal. Dont get me wrong i explained to her it must have been a hurtful thing she said but she is still onfused as to how zebra went from animal to that.......
