My family is VERY multicultural. My mom is biracial, my father is white, my step dad who adopted me is black, & his wife if Filipino. I was raised very aware of different cultures. MH is black. I was telling my MIL & SIL that we're going down to San Diego next month. We're going to go to Sea World, the zoo, & hangout on the beach. They asked if I was taking DS in the water down there & I said of course. Then my MIL goes "UMM, black people don't be all up in the water like that". I said, "d*mn, now even water discriminates". She gave a fake laugh & said "well 50% of black people don't know how to swim". I said "well I guess your son is part of the other 50%" and she got pissy after that. I'm so tired of everyone being so caught up with race lately, especially after my vent from Saturday night.
