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.

Yeah people would flip shit if a white woman called herself a proud white woman.

Umm.. I don't know why your child would even do that?

I have 3 little white boys but they didn't point out other people of race and ask "Whats that?"

Not with the child, with the parents who are not teaching their child manners. My nephew is three and he would never do that. My girls never did that.

Darlin, he was incredibly rude. If a three year old said what is that about me I'd be livid. People are not things. You need to break him of that immediately. "He is three" is not an excuse. Start correcting him. And you should've been correcting him.

Riiiiiight.

Because three year olds totally get that calling someone a what is incorrect. Dude. Their vocabulary is limited as it is. If you get livid over that small thing... lord. You must go around being angry all the time.

It's hardly RUDE. It may not have been correct, it may have been awkward for the parent, but it sure as heck wasn't "rude".

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.

I agree, My son is two and was calling everyone "he", and I corrected him EVERYTIME he was wrong.  I would apologize and explain, because it is offensive. Referring to a person as an inanimate object should be corrected, especially by the age of 3. I also agree with your last sentence 100%.  It is the parent's job to apologize if their child does or says something rude.  It is a teaching moment, not only on the proper way to speak, but how to be cordial to others.

He sounds too cute..  I would have laughed at the lady for feeling the need to be an idiot towards a child.

I don't blame u. He says what's that to any race but this was the first time I got that type of response. Luckily he is doing better. Lol

I guess she didn't realize that your child was only 3 years old. That just bothers me that a black woman can say "I'm a pourd BLACK woman", but as white women everyone would be offended if we said "I'm a proud WHITE woman" LOL

Lol he says it to white people too. My post doesn't say he says it to only blacks.
