my daughter started school a couple of weeks ago and she's had some similar conversations with me. She's been around "brown" people enough that
she understands the difference (her nanny is "brown" and that is how she described it to my daughter). She did ask some strange questions about
brown people having kids (she didn't think they could, even though we are friends with an african american family with two daughters, on her age - go
figure) and she also told me she really likes the pasian girls that sit at her table.
pasian being asian. again, go figure.
what most confused her, however, were the parents. "daddy, Laywood's mommy is brown but his mommy is white" and then there was the reverse
question for one of the girls in her class, who's mom is white, dad is african american.
I think they're just curious as, until now, they weren't overly exposed to differences in people.
