Proud black woman.....*ETA*

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
So we are in the store and my 3 year old is always asking "what's that?" He says it to people or toys....whatever.





There was a black lady beside us and my son said "what's that?" Apparently she was offended cause she looks at him and says "I am a proud black woman" I said that's nice and walked off








I mean he was three.....


***she wasn't nice when she said it and he meant to say who not what but that's just how he says it right now.

When my dd was 3 months old, a black receptionist that I knew helped me hold her so I could look for paperwork. Anyway, when she picked dd up, she burst out crying. Since i have a brain in my head, I assumed it was because this person wasn't mommy. But the lady got this disgusted look on her face, and said, "What, she don't like black people"? I mean for fucks sake, she was a BABY. Stupidity is everywhere.

it sounds like it was a really awkward situation all the way around, how is "that's nice" really that bad? what else was she supposed to say? "cool story" ? it is a 3 year old for frig sake, it's not like he was discriminate about what he was pointing at and asking questions about.

Quoting lnrmom:

Your response to her was bitchy. She responded appropriately in an uncomfortable situation. And you said "that's nice"? Seriously? Wow.

I did correct him after. She didn't give me time before and her tone was rude.

Quoting LucyHarper:

Talked to him like a three year old? She did, all she did was answer his question, she didn't curse him out or insult him or use complicated language. What did you want her to say. He was rude, you didn't correct him, so she has a right to think poorly of you and be offended.


Quoting Anonymous:

I do correct him. If she would have talked to him like a 3 year old I wouldn't have been like that.



Quoting LucyHarper:

I get that the child is three and doesn't know better, but if you don't correct him, he won't know better. When my child says something rude, I don't care how old they are, I reprimand them and tell them how to say it politely. She had a right to be offended, you could have just apologized and explained.

My daughter about got my ass beat at Burlington. She went off because the life sized santa clause was black. "Mom!! Why is this santa black? Santa isn't BLAAACK!!" lol. I have NEVER been so embarrassed in my life, nor have I ever been given such a look of death as from the black lady standing about 3 feet away.

I don't know maybe explain he says that about things and people? Apologize maybe? That is a rude response for a question that her son asked that was rude. "That's nice"? Really? How about diffusing the situation and saying "and a pretty one at that".

I'm not all about kissing ass, but when your kid is rude it falls on the parents to make it better.

He was rude. She was just giving him an answer and she had a right to be offended. She didn't do anything wrong.
