I know I have complained about this before but here I go again.
On Wednesday, Kobi and I went to the park since it was such a beautiful day. There was a girl there who was probably about 7 to 8 years old. She will definitely be one of the mean girls in school when she gets older.
At first she yelled at Kobi and then pushed him off a merry-go-round like object. Kobi didn't come running so I figured he was OK.
About a half hour passed, the little girl decided to play tag with Kobi so I figured everything was OK. The girl tagged Kobi and as soon as she did, her mom told her it was time to go. As she walked by me, her response to her daughter was, "I told you never to touch a black child." Really? Does Kobi have cooties or something?
There was a dad there with his two boys and he said, "Really, in today?" I told him this is not the first time we have encountered a parent like that but she was the first one who had the guts to say something as she was passing by me.
I was so busy watching Kobi that it didn't dawn on me right away until she passed me that she was talking about Kobi. My fear is one day somebody is going to say something and I am going to lose my temper.
After they left, the kids proceeded to all play and have a wonderful time.
I just don't get people. There goes another child who may grow up with the wrong values in life!
