Jett, my 8yo, asked me, “Is calling someone ‘fat’ racist?”
"No." I explained, "Being ‘fat’ is not a race. A race is a totally uncontrollable accident of birth based on your heritage. We are causation, some people are Hispanic, some are of African descent, and so on. We often distinguish race based on skin color such as white or black."
Just to double check he asked, “so there is no race of fat people?”
I replied, “Only on Black Friday.”
