Today we were at the park, and there was another little boy there who looked about six years old. This little boy decided to pretend that Jafta was his slave. He would order him around, saying things like “hey slave, get over here”. At first I thought I heard him wrong. But no. He definitely had the slave concept down.
I think this MAY take the cake on awkward racial experiences for me. Well, maybe it’s a close second to the time a lady approached me at the farmer’s market to tell me that her daughter had a negro baby, too. Yes, she actually used that word.
Anyhoo, just a good reminder to be vigilant about what our kids watch. So if you are in need of a Patrick Swayze fix and decide to order up the North & South miniseries on Netflix, do me a favor and wait until your kids are down.
