Hypothetically speaking, let's say you're sitting with your children at a mall food court. It's one of those places where the tables are spaced at a barely comfortable two feet apart.
And let's say that a family comes and sits at a table next to you. And your child looks at them curiously, intently.
And let's say that she observes--innocently, honestly--that "Some people have dark brown skin. And some people have light skin."
And let's say that she was not so quiet saying it.
And then let's say--hypothetically of course--that she immediately points to the large family on the other side of you. With an arm that's fully extended.
And let's say she remarks (also quite loudly), "Mom, those people are not speaking English."
Would you blush? Hang your head? Give your child evil eyes? Make some weak comment about not pointing?
Or would you do something more socially appropriate? And... what would that be, exactly?
