Things not to say to parents of biracial kids
At this link, I found a list of 15 things not to say to the parents of biracial kids. While some are unintentionally funny, “Oh, she’s so cute! What province did you get her from?”, others sound falsified, “Look at her cute chinky eyes!” At this point I would like to contribute some more things it would be unfortunate to say to parents of biracial kids:

1) Looks like your wife brought back something from her trip to Haiti last year.
2) Is your baby part Asian, or does it have Down’s Syndrome?
3) Your baby looks just like your rapist!
4) You should have called me when you found out you were pregnant, I would have paid for your abortion.
5) I guess you’re lucky; a couple more beers and your baby might have been half golden retriever.

    Man, those are cold, especially #4.

    But boy, if women had been hearing them for the past 20 years, we’d be so much better off than today.

  2. Dan Poole says:

    One of the most innocent & loving things in the world is when a friend or a stranger says to the mom and/or dad of a White child, “awww! He/she looks just like you!” It’s perfectly natural and, dare I say it, perfectly human, to want your kids to look like you. It’s also perfectly natural to admire the physical similarity between parent and child.

    I remember the first time I was introduced to a White couple who had (I guess) adopted an Asian kid and who introduced me to their “son” without explanation. This was back in the late 80s or early 90s. I can’t imagine how confused I must have looked. I guess I hadn’t heard much about adoptions like this so my immediate thought was, “does this guy realize that his wife must have cheated on him because “his” kid looked NOTHING like him?” Kind of like the John Redcorn/Joseph/Dale Gribbel situation on King of the Hill. Everyone in town knows that Joseph is Redcorn’s kid (he looks just like him) except the “father” who was cuckholded. Now these White men are volunteering for this! Nonsensical!

  4. “I guess you’re lucky; a couple more beers and your baby might have been half golden retriever.” Classic! I better write that one down!
