[QUOTE=1069;1058625408]If children laughed, it was no doubt out of confusion, discomfort, and fear.
As a parent, I can't imagine having to explain that one.
"It was supposed to be a joke."
"But why is it funny? I don't get it."[/QUOTE]
That has kinda been my response. IF it was supposed to be a joke it obviously wasnt very funny.
I really DONT understand how anyone could consider the event 'funny' and I have a pretty seriously dark sense of humor...
Still...people are what people are...and SOME people (of EVERY race) are ignorant and racist and make stupid comments. (referring to the person making the comment at WalMart). On reflection...I have a nephew that I could EASILY see being the culprit here...and it wouldnt have been 'racist' to him...just a product of an immature sense of humor and a lack of a developed frontal lobe to filter out right and wrong choices.
