Maybe it's just a language thing, but how can you mistake this for a racist remark? I mean it's obvious she's talking about something to eat/buy.

Reminds me of a story my dad told us of when he was a kid. He and his siblings all had standardized tests, and wanting to wish them good grades as they got on the bus, my grandma yelled, "Good luck with your testies!" to them. Testies. Testes. Yeah my dad got picked on a bit for that lol.

Yeah, but what is it supposed to mean in this context then if the mother really should have meant the derogatory term?
I really think that it sounds relatively innocent calling some small dark chocolate stuff in the snack isle darkies while it still shouldn't be okay to use this term regarding actual people.

Yeah, I mean if she was referring to people of colour, and there was a black couple nearby, she wouldn't be complaining about the absence of what she was looking for...

Wow! That could have been nipped in the bud a long ago. Someone around her could have clued her in that her term would be considered as a racial slur. I've never heard chocolate pretzels called dark much less darkies a day in my life. Makes me wonder what she calls her other snacks.
