Her Mother Wanted to Know Why She Talked to Black People

What if you decided to socialize with a different group of people at work who weren't your skin tone, from your country, or knew anything about your culture, and then someone in the group said or did something that irked you.  You go home and tell your partner or relative about it only for him or her to ask, "Why do you talk to those people?"

Not that long ago someone shared a story with me of a young white woman being asked what she felt was an offensive question by her mother, "Why do you talk to black people?"  Just the question alone speaks volumes.  But later I learned from the daughter that the mother had been very active over decades in black communities which peaked my interest slightly in this bold, white woman.  "I guess it was okay for the mother to deal with "the black people" and not her daughter," I thought.  But maybe, just maybe the mother noticed that her daughter had issue with black people based on years of seeing her mother frustrated because she had to deal with blacks.  Whatever the mother's reason for asking such an ignorant question, it was yet another issue to ponder.

Don't we do this sort of thing when we talk with people outside our race or in a certain social class such as saying something like, "John, why do you bother with those simple black folks?  You know they ghetto!  Don't go over there talking to them, you know how they are.  There's your cousins, I'm not talking to them, you talk to em'!"  So why do you bother with your people? 

Sometimes we have to think about what we are saying and what we are conveying to others.  Maybe the white mother had far too much experience with ghetto blacks and she didn't want her daughter to be corrupted by their ignorance like:  ridiculous name- calling, disrespectful fashion/lifestyle, unnecessary hollering and acting emotional, and "the attitude" (getting visibly upset over the littlest of things,) so she wanted to know, "Why do you talk to black people?"  If I had been there, I would have told her, "Not all blacks.  What kind of blacks do you think your daughter is talking to?  Obama blacks, Kee-kee, Tee-Tee and Ray- Ray blacks, Bi-racial blacks, Kuntu Kente blacks, what kind of blacks are you talking about?  Notice, one group of people within a group of people give just one more reason why ignorant people down the whole population.  State your truth!  There are different kinds of blacks from different kind of backgrounds and one size doesn't fit all! 

Stay cool, out there!
