Southern Say-Sos


We have long been back from our three week trip back home to the South. Given past experiences, I thought for sure I'd have at least one interesting story to tell about how people reacted to our transracial family. We got stared down by a few old folks, but who expects less from them, really? We got a few eye rolls from some white people, but no one said anything out loud. The only people who were vocal were the black women, and they had only compliments for our little girl. They commented on how big her thighs are and how big her cheeks are called her "juicy". "Ooooo dat baby so jUUUUsaay!" Well, she is. Beautifully juicy. Yep, that's my girl.
So yay for no rude comments (except from the old fart at church who always finds something "negative" to say about everyone and who everyone ignores). My overall impression is that most people who have a problem with transracial families are in the older generation and that people are finally starting to grow out of it. I sure hope I'm right.
