We got together with friends this past weekend. One of my buddy’s friends started telling this story about finishing grad school and getting an internship. She is getting her Master’s in Social Work and had an interview for an internship at a local organization that caters to disadvantaged youth. A noble profession. The problem is that this is a white woman that has black nephews & nieces and in a Walmart, she called them her little chocolate drops and that if they didn’t behave she would slap the black right off of them. She said multiple customers whipped out their phones to record the incident. Who talks like that? My nephew is half black but I would never say something as offensive as that. That rubbed me wrong, she thought it was hilarious. If this is normal speech for her, slip of the tongue is bound to happen on that internship. I say good luck to her.
