A mom and her biracial child were stopped by police at a Denver airport because a Southwest employee suspected human trafficking
Mary MacCarthy says she and her 10-year-old daughter faced "racist harassment" when they were reported to police by a Southwest Airlines employee.
I wish I didn't have stories like the link above but I sadly do. Most of you guys know I'm black (whatever this means) and my wife is white and blond (again whatever this means). Our kids have very light skin, curly blond hair with light eyes and their noses are the sole indicators of their subsaharan African heritage that you can't see with their masks on. Now we went to a playhouse today where you need to checkout. I told the (white) lady at checkout that "half of my party is left behind, let's wait a sec'". Then I tell her, "here they come," and my wife and my little daughter walks toward the exit (nobody nearby headed this direction). Lady scans for a few seconds (she clearly looks for a non-white person), then finally notices my wife (again the only person headed in her direction) and say, "I see."
While this is clearly not racism here, it just tells you so much that this lady was hardwired to assume I'm not with a "white person".
When I mentioned this to my wife, she immediately remembered when we were coming back from our Euro trip, on our reentry a (black) TSA lady asked my daughter to "tell her who I was", then when she didn't respond, she asked her "is she your daddy?". I usually try to ignore these things, but it makes you wonder, why isn't it natural to have an "interracial" (the term is bullshit) marriage with "multiracial" kids (bullshit terminology again). George Floyd had to be murdered for ads to dare using "interracial couples" and that's just fucked up.
