Hello... This is my first time blogging. I found this forum searching for resources and guidance with a situation that I am faced with. I am of Cuban, Jewish and African American decent. My husband is African American. Today during the ride home from picking my 9 yr old son up from school, he mentioned that after gym class he asked his teacher if she liked basketball. She responded by saying " do you think a white woman can play basketball?" The school that my son attends is predominately white and this is not the first time that racial related comments were made. Although this is the first time that it was made by a teacher. Am I overreacting? Over thinking things? the comment seemed to make my son very uncomfortable. I would like to address the issue with the teacher but, am fearful that she will begin to treat him unfairly. Has anyone experienced a similar situation?
