I just spent the last 45 minutes crying because earlier today, my neighbors kid called me “beaner.” But she cut her self off of addressing me like that since she knows I don’t like it. She knows because I had to tell her mother so before. So this little girl, no more than 7yrs old, knows that it’s not okay to call me that.
I had to flat out tell her mom a few days ago
- "Don’t call me that"
- "My nickname isn’t ‘Bean’ because I am Mexican."
- "I don’t like that"
and her response was “Oh no no no and I don’t mean it like that I just thought of it like a cute little name like *Cradles arms as if holding a baby* ‘Beaner’ no no if I didn’t like you then I would probably be like, ‘BEANER! Hehehhe!’” and her little snicker was the most evil disgusting snicker I have EVER heard.
I just can’t believe that she’s passed this bullshit onto her children who have absolutely NO IDEA how fucking offensive this shit is. I’m so disgusted, and ashamed, and disappointed, and my fucking feelings hurt over something I can’t— and wont everbe able to control.
