Mom just left after visiting us for a week and, wow, how did I not notice her comments before????<br><br>
When we were watching tv, they showed some children in India... she said "I just love their skin color." Same thing when we see someone who's African-American... "I just love their hair. I'd love to go up and touch it." Weird. I don't even know how to respond -- it <i>feels</i> racist to me, but it's subtle enough that I'm sure she'd deny it if I confronted her on it.<br><br>
Am I too sensitive? Or too wimpy for not calling her on it? Not sure how to handle it... but I'm sure it will come up again, so I'm looking for input...
