River had his first encounter with racism today (A classmate made some racist insults toward him). He’s in fourth grade. I was hoping he wouldn’t have to deal with this until high school at least.
Classmate #1: “Your face is deformed; you look like you came from Asia.”
Classmate #2: “Ooh! You got burned! You got burned!”
Classmate #2: “Your butt smells like seaweed.”
