Has anone ever been faced with your child's grandparents feeling that your child should be taught to be one race over the other? I am black and my ex husband is white. My current husband is black. When my son was born I was told that my child could pass as white and that he needed to be raised that way, my daughter also. they would have a better life that way. How can you say one race is more important to now than the other? He took their side and I divorced his racist behind. My ex has a problem because my current husband is the same race as me and the kids are seeing more of the "black side" as my ex calls it. Why should a choice have to be made.
