But your kids won’t be white.

New York, NY

This is what a family member said to me upon announcing my engagement to a black man. It was actually more ridiculous because it was framed as a question: “You know your kids won’t be white, right?” Wow, really? Doesn’t bother me but it clearly bothered her… My six words represent what she really meant.

    That’s hilarious – she said that as if that is a bad thing. Ignorance is bliss~

    And a confused child doomed to more discrimination than a full white or a full black.

    That’s funny, cause MY dad is black and has been married to my mother for over 40 years.
