This is a question Racist grandparents

It Came From Planet Aylia says: "My husband's mad Auntie Joan accused the man seven doors down of stealing her milk as he was the first black neighbour she had. She doesn't even get her milk delivered." Tell us about casual racism from oldies.

Thanks to Brayn Dedd who suggested this too

I resent the implication in this question
that just because someone is old, they will automatically have been racist. This is an offensive stereotype of a generation of good, solid, decent people. Take my grandparents, for instance, not a racist bone in their bodies. I know this because they treated their slaves every bit as well as they treated all the other animals that slept in their barn.

I do regret it now, I was trying to parody the lack of self awareness of the racism the actual authors
of a lot of this weeks answers, but it didn't really work.

Still, it would be cowardly to take it down and would look like I was trying to hide something, which is even worse, so I'll have to live with it now.

I hope the number of times I've been called a wanker liberal commie for calling out racism here before stands in my favour somewhat, but yeah, it's a pretty weak defence for an ill thought out reply.

Never mind eh? I'm sure lots of your friends are black.
