I have a new neighbor

She is white and has an Asian toddler.   Yeah, there’s a lot of information on the internet.  But you can only lead a horse to water.

  1. Why does that happen, I wonder? At work, I see several mothers with their multi-racial children and when I smile or greet them, they turn away. I always greet children because they’re little and cute, but these mothers in particular almost always send out the get-lost-vibes.

    I don’t know.

  2. I often think that white people are afraid of being judged by people of color. Especially when they have kids of color. But I find it trying, especially when they are people I run into regularly.

    Additionally, I think some of it is just good old racism. Seeing as how some of my white neighbors can’t see me either.
