My Kid Just Said… #38

Posted by on January 20th, 2014, under "MY KID JUST SAID..."

“Dis man hewped people become fwiends. Brown people, owange people, pink people… [lists every color possible]. All of dem.”
-Finn
(2013, 4 years old)
 

I asked him a simple question: “Why do we have a holiday on Monday?” My son has such an awesome take on race. Here’s hoping that one day, MLK’s dream and my son’s simplistic statement become real.

  5. Maybe he can come explain it to Karis because she just told me Martin Luther King was a guy who wanted all of the white people to turn brown. #ParentingFail

    ^ LoL!!!

    My 5 yr old doesn’t even notice the people’s color. To him they’re just people.
    The other day he heard someone say something about a “black guy,” and he asked me “Why does it matter that the guy is black?” I told him “It really doesn’t matter. Some people are just ignorant.”

    Cute. and very smart.

    Also, why does dad have a blue tongue and son not have a blue tongue. Have you been indulging in his treats?!! I only ask because my SO will snack on baby’s snacks and say he’s “sharing”. ;)

    From the mouth of babes… That tells me YOU’RE a great parent; you’ve made sure to express love for everyone and your son sees your example. Awesome job, Dad.

    Good job, kiddo! :)

  12. HAHA! I talked to my daughter about MLK (who she somewhat gets mixed up with Nelson Mandela. Give her a break, she’s 4). When I asked her about MLK day and what it’s about here is what she said:
    “People shooted that very good man because he dreamed. And then he was King of Africa.”
