When my son was in 1st grade he was so stressed when it came time to go to school. He was experiencing prejudice from all the black kids in his class. Not one would play with him, I would never have believed it if I did not see for myself. I had to go to school with him and talk to the teacher about it. I am black so that floored me these kids had to learn it from their parents. Even when he was in middle school the kids that would talk to him would ask that he keep their friendship secret. I told him not to talk to them kids again, and he would never be anyone's secret friend. Well now he is 14 and not as bitter anymore, they still don't really associate with him but he can care less. However, I have two girls and I dread the start of school for them for next year. They are so sensitive and it would really hurt them.
Why does life have to be so hard for bi racial kids? =( My husband is white and I am black.
