****************
One Saturday morning, I went to the office to finish up some work. My department secretary, who was seated nearby, was also there along with her 5 year old daughter called Amanda. Since I love kids, I played with little Amanda for a while before beginning my work.

After a while of being left alone, she got restless and asked her mother if she could go to the pantry for a snack. Her mother agreed so off she went. Coincidentally, another Indian lady (also a secretary but for another department) was also there that day with her daughter.

When I walked to the pantry to make a drink, I saw the two munchkins socialising. I did not understand a word they were communicating despite the fact that one was a Chinese and one was a Indian hence they could not possibly any other language in common besides English.

Anyway, I assumed that children say nothing out of something most of the time. I went back to my place to resume with my work as soon as I was done making my drink. 15 minutes later, Amanda returned to her mother, who asked what she had been doing for the past 30 minutes.

Amanda told her mother that she had made a new friend. After which, she added really loudly (in the still and quiet office on a Saturday morning), “My friend is black, mummy!!!” Her mother tried to hush her but the little girl kept repeating herself as if trying to prove a point.

You racist people will love Amanda.
