Biracial children and family members racist comment...
I am white and my sons father is Puerto Rican. We were together for ten years but I left him in April. I am pretty postive he cheated on my and he is very controlling and abusive. I had enough, but this is a man that I love dearly. I did not leave him because I do not love him, I left because I was tired of all of the drama and it was hurting my children. I have a 13 year old son and together we share a 5 year old son.
I moved 5 hours away from my SO and now live near my brother. I have been feeling really lonely and isolated.
My father passed away one year ago yesterday and me and my brother got into an arguement because he took my 13 year old sons bike that my dad gave to him and put the handle bars onto his sons bike. My son was not using the bike, but still.... my brother did not even ask me if he could do that and I wanted the bike in one peice. There is nothing wrong with it, it just has two flat tires. Anyway I was upset that he did this and on the anniversary of my dads passing just made it worse.
I called my mom to vent and she in turn went and called my brother because he really upset me. Yelling and cursing at me because I said how I felt. So, he also yelled at my mom and somehow brought my sons father into it and called him a SPIC.
I am upset he said this, one because I still love this man and two because my son is Puerto Rican also. Is feeling offended an over reaction???? Should I say something or leave it alone and let it pass. Basically I have been hiding in my house since yesterday. What do I do or say??? Please help me, I am a mess.
