My DD was happily chattering away at me, and the lady says in Spanish to her son: "what a shame, making the pretty little girl dirty by making her half black. I don't understand these Mexican women having black husbands and babies!" Her son said to her (in Spanish) "quiet mama, I think she understands you!" To which the lady says "good!"
I don't speak Spanish, but I can understand it. I was so shocked at what she was saying I just stood there trying to quickly bag my items. The cashier was just shaking her head in disbelief.
Why?? Why would anyone say that, especially within earshot of the child and parent? Yes my DD is half Black but she's also part Mexican and white and a tiny bit American Indian. But how in the hell does that make her "dirty" and seriously, how is it any business Of hers?
I am still upset about it now, but I didn't tell DH because I know he would be ticked off. No reason to upset him like I'm upset!
