no white girl will ever have her little boy look up at her and tell her she's yucky because she's brown.
We were watching a show when a dark skinned person came on and Trey made a disgusted face and said "eww.." so I said "what's that ew?" and he said "cause her face is brown". I said "What color is Mommys face?" and he says ".. brown", and I said "So well is Mommy yucky too, or is mommy pretty?" and he said yucky, brown.
Broke my heart, and I have no way of knowing where he got it from. Not TV because I don't let him watch it, we took away cable when he was born for that reason, not home life, because 75% of his family is brown.
It shows that no matter how much I do to raise him otherwise, this shit still seeps in and it still seeps in at an age young enough to break your heart. I will slap the next person who tells me racism is dead.
I didn't get mad because he's too young to fully grasp it, he's repeating what he's heard from somewhere, but I am going to do massive unlearning over the next little bit, and talk to his daycare to see if he is getting it from there from another kid or something.
