With impeccable timing, the children chose Mothers Day lunch to tell their grandmother she was racist. And what vile abuse had my poor mother bandied about? She had asked her grandson if his choir sang Negro spirituals.

I don’t care about racism at all. I’m done.
My grandmother used to refer to blacks as “dark clouds”.

There are worse things in the world than racism.
Minor point in this article, but the author’s children have not been taught any manners, nor has she done a mother’s duty to teach them enduring values separate from the public school indoctrination.
These kids would be grounded before they got half their brainwashed words out of their mouths if they were mine.
Are you sure?
We have nothing to be ashamed about other than the fact that we don't fight back.
There’s only one race. The human race. But there are a bunch of cultures. And a lot of them have taken up residence in this country. And most of them suck.
i agree. I am beyond racism. No one can prove to me any differences based on “race”. Good and evil hearts, you have to check for what is inside.

My children would be running for their dear lives if they talked to grandma that way. I couldn’t even imagine one of them saying something like that, besides the fact that the rest would be stupefied if one of them tried it.

In 15 years, nobody has ever called this little ol’ Injun lady “raciss” for singin’ the Blues...and EVERYBODY wants to play ‘em.
I have taught “The Blues” at the second grade level all the way up to College level, and will continue to do so until I am sent to a reeducation camp.
I am totally non-prejudiced when it comes to race. I am, however, highly prejudiced when it comes to culture, and all cultures are FAR from equal!
“My grandmother used to refer to blacks as dark clouds..
Well your grandmother certainly was a visionairy since the “negro” population in the U.S. (not all but most) have cast a very dark cloud on THEMSELVES.
That is NOT racist but fact.
My grandmother, from the old country would say things like “That nice nigger girl brought over some fresh bread and I made tea...”
I knew enough at the age of 9 that was a derogatory term. I also knew enough not to tell my 90 year-old grandmother!
Sure as the sky is blue...
