So a little about me, I am from California, the Bay Area. My husband is from West Virginia (Yeah huge leap in everything about us) well anyways, I am out here in West Virginia right now. I am one of the two or three 'colored' people out here within a 75 mile radius (everyone knows everyone's family out here). I am half black, half white with brown hair and green eyes.
Well here I am going into Walmart cause the nearest mall or store other than walmart is almost 50 miles away. This lady comes up to me and coos at my son and says:
Lady - "Aww he is so cute are you babysitting?"
Me- "What?.. No?" so I look at Connor and was like "This is my son"
Lady - "How is that your son? wow he is bright blond hair and bright blue eyes"
Me - "It isn't a far stray from my green"
Lady - "Just his skin is so light, I would have never known he was anything other than white."
Me (in a very mocking country tone)- "Well! I guess I grabbed the wrong baby. Shucks with all pickins' I did that day I was seeing brown all over! Excuse me while I take the colored exit out and go hand this wonderful baby to his rightful mother."
I know, it is bad, but this isn't the first time this has happened since I've had him. I usually find it more funny than anything, but today it was hot and humid... and I was sticky.
