You might want to read my original post again. I wrote that comment from someone named "Gordie," ought to have his comment flagged as abusive. Sheesh.
If you honestly believe that it is appropriate for your "Mum," to approach a Somali woman and make a comment about her clothing, please describe what you are wearing so that I may decide if it meets my standards.
"She once while in the company of my daughter was in one of the lobies(sic) of a housing Athority(sic), when she noticed a Somali woman sitting in the front, mum sturnly(sic) stepped up to that person and said listen your(sic) in America now you do not have to dress like that."
I cannot imagine how the Somali woman felt as your "mum" "sternly stepped up," and told her she didn't have to "dress like that!" Did it occur to your "Mum," or you, that the woman might have been proudly wearing something she just bought or just made? Who gave your "Mum" permission to tell ANYONE what they ought to be wearing? Personally, I am offended by loud sweatshirts with logos shouting to the world; "Hey, lookie here, I just got back from Branson/Las Vegas/Florida/Disney." And when you highlight the bright pink lettering by wearing bright pink socks, it gives me a headache. But so do Crocs.
Unless your "Mum," is Joan Rivers and is paid to insult fashion do's and dont's, I think she might be better served if she just said; "Hello."
And Gordie, I imagine your; "rabbits," comment will be flagged as abusive soon. Seriously? I'm Catholic and your people use to say the same thing to my relatives. It's nunya, as my 10 year old would say. NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS.
Why such light sentences in Maine?
I was stunned by the negative comments about this young woman yesterday. Thank you Patti and Dr. Dosh I will forward your post to her family...
What an amazing event for this small Maine school. To have someone who personally knew Rosa Parks visit and talk about the civil rights movement is absolutely amazing. I hope these children and their parents, take these lessons with them for a lifetime...
