He’ll Grow Up To Be A Fine Customer (From Hell) One Day

| Newport, OR, USA | Bigotry, Family & Kids

(I’m helping visitors touch some of the animals on exhibit. One of the boys in the crowd is getting too rowdy with the snake I have out.)

Me: “I’m going to need you to step back so someone else can have a turn.”

Boy: “Why?”

Me: “You’re being a little to rough with the animal. You can come back later, though.”

Boy: “YOU ARE BEING RACIST!”

Me: “Um…how?”

Boy: “It’s because I’m black!”

(Note: I’m white, and so is the boy.)

Me: “Um, you’re white.”

Boy: “Oh, so now you’re being a reverse racist!” *storms away*
