I am white my husband is mixed, but looks black. We are pregnant with our first child (a boy, yeah!!). My husband is in the military and we are stationed in the south. When we are at walmart or the grocery store or just out and about we often get snide remarks from the LOCAL black women (of all ages) about how awful it is that a white girl is with one of their good black men, or something along those lines. They dont speak directly to us, but purposefully say it so we can hear.
It is probably because I am pregnant, but this is really starting to bug me. I have restrained myself from saying anything to this point... but there has to be some witty but appropriate remark I can say. I am worried if I dont I am either going to snap in a prego rage or burst into tears. HELP!
(my husband is not bothered by it, and sometimes finds it amusing. He understands that it bugs me but doesnt want to create a scene by saying something himself).
