Wrong!

March 29, 2006 at 4:45 pm 2 comments

There is a woman I work with who adopted a baby in the USA who's birthparents are from El Salvador. Her daughter is now 6 years old and is asking questions about looking differently (well she has since she was like 3). So she taught her daughter to tell people that she is "Latino." And she was proudly telling me about it. I listened and then said, "you mean Latina, since she is a girl, right?" She was stumped — so I gave her a mini Spanish lesson (from someone who cannot speak Spanish!). Eight months later… she is still saying her daughter is "latino." Grrrrr…. does she not care??

Stupid people!

It’s just not that black & white. Not because I am taking a stand against. Just because, the issues I face are somewhere in the grey area and to weed through them, I blog. I blog. ~
