We think we literally broke the internet radio with this topic…we had so many chatters and callers on our show there was a system overload! We were at the Kitchen Table talking about RACISM. Yep, we went there because it’s out there – we can try and paint over it, but sometimes a rock gets turned over and dirt gets uncovered…oopsy. The big story today is about the rock at the entrance to some hunting land that GOP candidate Rick Perry’s family leased in Texas in the 80′s. The land was literally marked with a rock that had “N— Head” painted on it. The story broke in the Washington Post over the weekend. But, there’s another story on ABC that the Perry camp is denying it. So, we’re chatting about it because there are lots of lessons for our KID-Os today. Click here to listen in and let us know what you think MAMAS?! Has Perry hit rock bottom? Or, will we find out he did the heavy lifting when faced with this racial slur and removed it from the property?
MOMism: ”Leave no stone left unturned.” We teach our KID-Os to find out the truth. Turn over every rock and find cool stuff…or a bunch of dirt…but, the point is to look. This lesson is true in life and in politics. So, MAMAs, do you think the rock in question is going to sink Perry’s poll numbers? Or, can this issue simply be painted over by digging further? How are you teaching your KID-Os tolerance? What would you say if they ever heard the N-word?! Let us know your opinion MAMAs!
