"It is a very hurtful thing to a child, when he is not able to relate to his parents, because one is black and one is white."
All ISES to HIS MAJESTY
Ever living, ever-loving
With Raspect Baba Marcus
Is the I speaking from personal experience?
I own children have no such hurt, they are given instruction as to their history, ancient and modern, they are given the best I-ducation from both perspectives - further, they are encouraged to LOVE themselves in ALL their glory - not to put themselves above any one, nor below any one. To realeyes their gifts and work to bring them to the fullness.
What would surely hurt them would be their 'black' family telling them they are 'mongrels' (a word once used here in a similar reasoning) or that they are somehow 'less' because of their parentage.
