My blood pressure SHOT SKYROCKET high this afternoon while giving a kick-off at a school. I enjoy my job, I really do. I get to work with kids everyday, what can beat that? I love kids, if anyone knows me well enough they KNOW I love kids.
I don't even know where to begin?
Long story short.....
I had to go to the bathroom, so I went. I did my business ( sorry for the graphics ) and then proceeded to wash my hands. By the way, this was the end of the day and I was ready to get out of there. I wash my hands then dry them. As I am walking out of the bathroom, I see a group of kids walking down the hall I was about to walk down as well. As I continue to walk out of the bathroom this boy yelled out " HEY CRACKER".
I LITERALLY STOPPED IN MY TRACKS.
How the hell ( sorry for the cussing ) am I supposed to react to that racial slur that was just said to me? REALLY??!?!?!? The other kids that were with the boy that said that started to laugh and chuckle and whisper. I continued to walk down the hall as if I didn't hear it, but boy, did my face show it - it was beat red.
A middle school boy just called me a CRACKER? I took offense to that remark, that was a racial slur. I didn't even do a darn thing to him to call me that he did. This kid called me a cracker and laughed about it.
WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO????????????
