There were 18 girls (age 8) in our troop, myself, and four mothers all sitting around my family room listening to the woman speak. After a few minutes, she began to speak about Jewish people...I saw her eyes acknowledge a little girl of Syrian heritage...so in my mind I thought (oh...this woman thinks that Kellie is, Jewish). The woman continues to speak about Jewish people...then she asked if there were any Jewish kids in the room...as she once again looked at, Kellie (I guess she expected Kellie to raise her hand.)
A little blonde haired, blue-eyed girl named Summer raised her hand and said, "I'm Jewish."
The woman from headquarters said, "Honey, you're not Jewish, put your hand down."
Summer turned around and said to her mother, "MOM! I am too Jewish."
Her mom confirmed that Summer was Jewish...the woman from headquarters apologized.
Some representative for racial tolerance, hey? She judged the girl's ethnic heritage by their looks.
I was at work one day. The tv was on and a commercial came on showing a white woman with a black baby. A black co-worker said, they are trying to do away with white and black and make everyone one color. He was right.
Good true story!
