Okay, I'm glad to hear that. Sometimes I feel like I must be crazy.
I think about what these statements to do the self-concepts of kids who belong to these different groups. Or if you're another minority, I wonder if it makes you ponder what they think about your group.
It bothers me when those in the majority discount the effect that this racism has on kids. Why is it so hard for some people to see/understand how inappropriate this kind of speech is?
I'm white. I think those statements are offensive and would not like to hear them either. I've also heard non-whites say racist things. I think its the person speaking & their level of awareness VS "caucasians think racist comments are OK!" type of thing.
