Racism....

Here comes the season for the adults to be broke. CHRISTMAS! So, I went to Toy'R'us for shopping today since they are having good deals and rebate vouchers. Great saving.

While I was picking up presents, there was a mother and a 3-4 years old son beside me. Can't help overhearing their conversation, both in broken English....

Son: mummy, I want buy two of tis toi.....
Mother: Cannot lar, onli one onli, you tink I make money ar?
Son: I want twoooo lar...
Mother: You don know listen is it? I say onli one ar, if you behave like tis somemore, I let the Indian take u away ar, I tell you. Evelitime like tis, next time don't want take you out anymore. Evelitime also make me angly.....

While the mum was scolding the kid, so happened there was an Indian couple beside, and they were looking at her. I could tell the Indian couple wasn't happy at what she said. She stood up and saw them, acted nonchalant and walked away.

What kind of teaching is that? Racism? Crazy woman. If so happened You(the woman) is reading this blog here, please, you should be ashame of yourself!
