Biracial Child asks (either parent): Why did you call mommy/daddy the N-word?
Apparently, the two links that are attached to this story reflect a subject that oftentimes is not discussed by proponents of interracial unions/marriage.
Frankly, I’m not interested in dating or marrying someone of another race, but particularly, white.
Because, you can’t love me–if you hold a negative view of who I am–even subconsciously. And to further: I’m not looking for the Great White Hope.
White people these days are always trying to sweep racism under the carpet–even using the statistics of the rise in IR unions as their proof. What is it supposed to prove? We’re not witnessing the daily struggles of these couples. And more bluntly; a white person does not every worry about being called a N-word or slave.
It’s the ultimate oxymoron.
Race/racism is the foundation of this country. Daily news reflects it.
However, in a marriage, when someone tells you I do, then after any type of disagreement, misunderstanding or character issue; the N-bomb comes out of the white spouse’s mouth. What’s the response to that?
Some African Americans really don’t have any sympathy.
However, in relation to the children involved; what do you say to a child that asks the question: Why did you use that word?
