Letter to the Editor for June 28, 2013


Wisdom from a 6-year-old

I was at Albertsons, waiting for my daughter, in the van with my 2-year-old and 6-year-old grandsons. Alex, who is 6, just had his tonsils and adenoids and two front teeth pulled. He was not feeling too well. A car was parked next to us with Idaho plates. A man came to the car, looked at me and seemed very upset. Then I think his wife arrived. I was standing outside my van attending to the boys. The man said very loudly, “nigger lover.” I would prefer to say black lover. It got my attention. Alex asked me what that meant. I said he means black person. Alex replied, “Nana, wasn’t that nice? We love all colors of people, right nana?” My answer: “Yes, sweetie, we do.” I’m a proud grandma of one very smart grandson.
