Mimi was invited to attend a get together,
at the Whereville ice cream shop,
to meet the other teen girls in town.
The local homeschool group is growing
at an enormous rate,
and us mamas wanted our teens to start connecting.
The girls sat and chatted about an hour,
and seemed to be enjoying themselves.
On the way home Mimi told me all about
one of the girls going on and on about
how her friend had just moved
into a bad neighborhood.
You know how she could tell it was a bad neighborhood?
Black people lived there!
Mimi, ever gracious, said
"Did you know my baby brother is black?"
Then went on to tell this girl that black skin
is not what makes a neighborhood bad.
The young lady backpedaled by saying
she's "met a nice black person once".
A few minutes later, the same girl began talking
about people with "brown skin".
Yup, that's exactly how she said it,
brown skinned people.
Mimi's friend replied "You know I'm Native American right?
You know I have brown skin?"
I'm proud of these girls for stepping up
and calling this young lady out for her attitude.
I have no idea what to do now.
I certainly won't stand by while kids spew racist remarks,
but I'm going to march up to confront this mom either.
