It's not worth it.
But to hear a fellow parent committing the purest form of prejudice, I can't help but feel ghastly pained and disgusted to no end! My child goes to the same school as this parent's children. He had recently announced that they were moving their kids to a private school because according to him the school is starting to fall apart by the sole reason it now have more Blacks and Hispanics kids. WTF! If his reason was because of a dysfunctional education system, I would have fully agreed with him but OMG! the number of "colored kids" is his basis for a good school? C'moooonnnn!
I can't help but question his integrity as a person. This is how kids learn prejudice. From their own parents! Does he really want his kids to learn this ridiculous act and look at others with disparity and parody at every given opportunity? No wonder we can't find peace and harmony anywhere. Even in the smallest of community there is "war". I'm a colored person, my daughter is semi-colored. It's not our fault we are colored.
I wish some people have more sense to see past and beyond the ugly history long gone and look at us for what we are: a human, living person and not be judged by the color of our skin and race! Plain and simple. Why does other people find it difficult to do just that?
In retrospect, prejudice happens to everyone but it does hurt to the core of your being when you're mainly targeted solely because of your appearance. If you were ever a victim of prejudice, what would your first reaction be? And how would you deal with the situation?
