I grew up in a Dutch community. It all seemed normal at the time...having candy given to you from a fake slave.

I have heard of this!! I grew up in Pittsburgh, and there is every ethnicity you can think of there. God help me, my family is Polish, on both sides! We absolutely love a good Polish joke too! Both my grandmas would ask the last names of our friends, and when told her, she would tell us what their ancestry is and tell us to be mindful of their traditions, basically "Don't make an ass of yourself!" :)

Picard Wtf Meme | POLISH JOKES? I THOUGHT THOSE WERE TRUE STORIES! | image tagged in memes,picard wtf | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Couldn't help myself! XD that's really cool what your grandmothers did! :D it's great having friends from different cultures and backgrounds because you can learn all about them. I grew up in the Bay Area, and my Boy Scout troop had Christians, Jews and Hindus (and possibly Buddhists with the Chinese kids).

Captain Picard Facepalm Meme | They mostly are true..... | image tagged in memes,captain picard facepalm | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
It's funny how they speak of diversity today, like everyone has to be a different color to be " Diverse". They lump "White People" in one pile, in Pittsburgh when I was growing up, there were people from every corner of Europe and the near East, all were what today people would consider white, but you could not find a more diverse grouping of people anywhere else on the planet! If you tried to say that all those people were all the same, you'd have one hell of fight on your hands! Not to mention that you'd be so wrong in saying that, just as they are today in saying that, too! Like you, growing up with poeple from all over the place, you have respect for all of these people, and treat them as you would like to be treated, right? :)
