Actually, I’m trying to bring him up in my culture as well. So not raised the same as everyone else. Food, media, parenting methods, etc.
People say it in a good way. Like: look at the foreigner baby, he’s got beautiful eyes. Or, he’s special…or he’s so lucky to learn English as a foreigner, he’ll be bilingual.
They’re not using it in negative way. They are using it as praise. Like I said, maybe things will change in the future, but I don’t take it as a negative. I think somen people are being overly sensitive.
Not seeing this. I think an overly sensitive parent could project this onto a kid. But it’s not the case for us.
I think similarly in Canada, if you’re not white, you’re going to get the: where are you really from? Question.
I think little are just curious, I don’t think it’s inherently racist.
