OK. My story is that we have adopted two sons that both turned out to be bi-racial. My older son is much darker than the younger one. We were at Olive Garden tonight and this guy was talking about sending his daughter to BJU.
I chirped up with “Even if I wanted to, I couldn’t send my son there, now could I?”
I was told that the “school had changed and that there black people there now” I asked if they were staff or for comic relief.
He asked me where I got my information – I said remembered a student manual that stated there could be dating across the races.
I was again informed that this wasn’t the case. So, I beligerantly continued, “So now my son has soul and the dignity that God gives to all His children?” The man laughed and patted my son’s shoulder and said “We them all now.”
I was glad my husband was sitting a distance from me – he would have been mortified, I managed to not say anything rude after he patronized my seven year old – who was totally ingoring our discussion.
Anyway, I know I didn’t do anything positive for the faith or put that bigot in his place, but I wish I had. Mea culpa! Mea maxima culpa!
