My MIL is awesome. I love her, but I can't believe what she said.

I had a picture of him on FB. One of my husband's sisters put it on her FB and showed it to their mom.

DH's mom called him today. She was talking about the pic. She said, "Son, he looks like a N***a baby."

I don't understand why she would say that. My husband, her son, is half black. DH's mom is Hispanic. I know he looked kind of dark in the pic, but what the heck. Even my husband was shocked that she said that.

I am posting the pic she is referring to.

I was a little taken aback reading it at first and then I thought, well... maybe she meant he looks like he has swag or something.

You have to love people that are racist against races they procreate with.

I asked my husband and he said she was referring to how dark he was.

Well, isn't her son also a n-word baby then? I'm confused. On a related note, my very racist Nana used to want a "little black baby" when she was a little girl. Apparently, because "their hair is so soft and fluffy like wool." She'd always talk about how every time she saw a black baby when she was a girl, she'd want to steal it, or play with its hair. It's like she thought she could have a black baby as a pet. WTF Nana? Keep him away from my Nana, lol.
