Small Towns, Small Minds

I can only take so much of the in-laws. With their most recent visit, MILDEW rearranged all of Chloe's dresser drawers, did Chloe's & my husband's laundry but didn't touch mine & enjoyed arguing with me about EVERYthing....Fine. I can vent it all out once they are gone.

But I just cannot bring myself to forgive nor ignore ignorant hatred. And that's all I can call it. If you were to call them out & dare say "racist" they would vehemently deny it.

How else should it be taken when comments go like this:
"I just know is about 10 years the world will be slant-eyed amalattos." (his pronunciation)
"I just don't understand their language." (After walking away from an African-American cashier.)


I thought our society had come so much farther than this crap. I suppose it could have been worse, but it made my gut churn, nonetheless. I felt so stupid for not calling them out. I was in such shock & disbelief. I had never heard anything like this from them. Their verbal vomit is usually just their distaste for me. I suppose a sliver of silver lining would be that my husband didn't "inherit" their thinking.

Seriously. Woah.

Hopefully Chloe isn't picking up on any of that.

They need to change their stinkin' thinkin' and fast.

And, I cannot believe she didn't also do your laundry! OH MY GOD!
