Someone calling a white person ‘wonder bread’ isn’t racist. It’s rude, but it’s not racist. Wonder bread as an offensive term has no weight, no meaning. It’s just something to push your buttons. Using the N-word is racist - it has meaning and weight and brings up a past that should’ve never happened. The comparison between rude and racist is like squares and rectangles - every square is a rectangle, but not every rectangle is a square. Every racist comment you hear is rude, but not every rude comment you hear is racist.

We’ve made sure to instill pride in all of our nieces and nephews. It’s hard however when you have other Black kids who feel otherwise.
Make sure you tell a Black girl and/or boy that they are beautiful today. Tell them their hair is beautiful and their skin is gorgeous. We have to rebuild the esteems of the kids in our community.
