Recently a co-worker of my wife's moved to a new job. This required relocating, and her two hellions (6yrs, 8yrs) had to go to a new school. Phonecalls home from the school have always been a regular occurence. She's one of those types who doesn't discipline very well, and tries to reason with them all the time. No male role model either. Anyways she gets a phonecall from the new school saying that the 8year old is very nice to the white children but not the blacks. They moved from a very rural community with no blacks at all, to an inner city. Conversation: -"Honey, your teacher called and said you aren't being very nice to the coloured kids at school. You know there people just like you, only their skin is a different colour. blah blah blah (She made a sincere attempt to explain this to the child)." -"Mom, they're brown not coloured!" Freakin' kids eh?
