To the women that made racial slurs and cursed at me in front of my child

Posted on Tue, Jan 17, 2017 at 12:00 PM

In my almost 30 years born and raised in Halifax as a mixed race Canadian, I am not unfamiliar to misconceptions about my heritage. However, in a disagreement over a parking spot (which I acquired), I was the recipient of profanity and racial slurs in front of my wife and two-year-old. I was deeply saddened that not only is racism still a problem, but that there are those who think that it and profanity are acceptable in the presence of a child. I admit that I lost my composure and yelled at you, only escalating the situation; and for that I apologize. —A mixed race parent of a mixed race child
