There’s no excuse for being racist

I have been accustomed to ignoring my grandparents when they state something ignorant. I’m told, “it was different back then, they’re too stubborn to change their minds”. Why should they get to say disgusting things to people who have done nothing but mind their business? It happens too often where an older person says a degrading statement to an innocent person, & it needs to stop. We need to start telling those people how hurtful & plain ignorant it is to say those things. It’s time to make a stand
