Welp, we can never eat there again. Consuela* United States 5029 posts

DH is working late tonight and it's the first day of my period (so I'm tired and crampy as f**k) I didn't want to cook so I took the boys to our favorite chinese restaurant. We get food from there all the time, the owner lives down the street from us. Nice family. 

Anyways we are sitting there eating in the front room where they are all at the front desk. When DS1 says, pretty loudly, because he's never quiet, that he does not like the people in China, but their food sure is delicious. 
I was mortified.
As it turns out an older kid on his bus was telling him about that dog festival in China where some people boil the dogs and eat them. So that's why he said that, thinking that everyone from China boils dogs alive.... I set him straight, but OMG now they probably think we are racists and teach our kid to hate Chinese people.

At the zoo once my daughter very loudly pointed out the get with one leg. I could have died in a hole. I was like please don't every do that again but yes many people look differently and part of being different is some might have one leg but that doesn't mean they need to be reminded of that.

My youngest was playing with a little black girl in the waiting room at the doctor's recently and he stood up, pointed at me, and shouted "That's my mom. She's 32 and she's WHITE because everyone in OUR house is WHITE. You can wave at her if you want!"

I was like :O

Oooh man. One of my friends is British, but his family is from India and pretty traditional. Ds1 met his mom and promptly told her she smelled funny. He was much younger at the time but yeah. Embarassing.

I was at the grocery store with my oldest one time, he was 4 or 5. We turned down an aisle and this black boy was standing there looking at something. Ds1 points directly at him and says "mom look!" my heart stopped and i KNEW it was going to be a comment about his skin being a different color. He finishes with "that boy is all alone! Where are his parents?" i think my sigh of relief was loud enough for everyone in the store to hear. Lol!!

I'm not sure if that's sarcastic with the face? But I definitely didn't think it was funny at the time, I felt so awful. When I explained to DS1 that just because there might be a few people that do things you don't like that doesn't mean every person from that country is like that then said what if he were visiting China and someone said, "I really don't like Americans, but their hamburgers sure taste good." How would that make him feel? He actually started crying, I thought he was crying because he got in trouble, but when I asked him why he was crying he said it was because he felt really bad for saying it.
