i went to run it by her mom.. but she had already told her.
her mom doesnt care... she was saying, 'thats the way they play.. she doesnt/wouldnt say that to anyone else or anyone outside'
then her daughter was like 'we were just playing....'
when i was explaining how as a 5 yr old.. regardless of joking or not.. may start to associate being dark as a bad thing when you joke like that, her mom nodded and was like i could see how that could happen.
but yea... shes not worried about it. I am pretty sure she'll continue to teach the dark one that her skin is beautiful so shes not worried...
but still..... i could see it if she was joking with someone older.. but a 5 yr old.. come on now.. their brains are different.
ive always felt like my cousin was a really good mother (aside from letting her daughter stay home so much) but yea.. she loses good mom points for this one. smh..
