Some white teenagers are so disrespectful. Why? Answer: White privilege! And loose parenting of white children. White children are raised to question authority and call elders by their first name. Disrespectful! I have seen young white adults on vacation acting in this same matter. The term “ugly Americans” come to mind. But, just the history of white men and Indians in this country makes the scene look ugly. Disrespectful act is the tomahawk chant by a crowd of young white boys wearing their badge of membership in the deplorables, “make America great again” hat in support of President Trump. Those in some of the marginalized groups in this country just shake their head in this climate of racial tension. It starts at the top is true if our president doesn’t speak out against these actions then it’s accepted.
I took my child to work for “take your kid to work” day. She is being raised to respect her elders by using a Ms. or Mrs. and Mr. My boss, vice president, gets on the elevator and I introduce them and she insists my child call her Patty. Are you serious Patty “with no children”? She is 9 years old and being raised to call her elders by their proper salutation. This is an important part of Black culture to teach our children to be respectful or it could possibly cost them their life.
