Today, I caught my teenage daughter doing her laundry for the first time ever. She had piles of black and white, but then she threw them together in the washing machine. I told her blacks and whites were supposed to be separate, but she just said, "End the segregation, mom." FML

MLK didn't die for this

He died while fighting it... So he did

He died whilst fighting for laundry? Wow. My history teacher lied.

@5: #1 meant that he didn't die just to have blacks and whites still be separated in the end.

Omg does everyone on this site not understand sarcasm?

Laziness level 100

The irony is that she separated her blacks and whites first anyway before tossing them in together. She already did the hard part

She'll regret it when her laundry comes out fucked up though

I've always mixed my laundry. I have yet to have messed up clothing. Colors haven't faded either. Then again, I don't own many "whites."

I always do mine all together in cold water and they come out fine. Oh and cold water is better because it doesn't cause color bleeding like hot does anyway.

I only own a few whites and I have mixed with my colored clothes out of laziness. Dont do it, you might not notice it now because it slowly stains your clothes every time you wash them together.

Using cold water, and salt or white vinegar will actually make your colors last longer.

Now all of her clothes will be "50 shades of grey."

I wash new colored clothes separately once or twice, then mix them and just wash everything with warm water. Modern dyes don't usually bleed after the first wash, if that.

You wash your clothes sometimes more than once in one laundry day? Someone is asking for their clothes to fade out.

if I do only whites then I use bleach, if I mix my whites and darks (I dont have enough whites for their own load) then I dont bleach them and ive never had an issue? detergent and fabric softener haven't ever made my colors bleed together even with a color shirt and white shirt together in one load

In the decade plus that I've been doing my laundry, I've never separated a damn thing. My laundry has also never been ruined by it. White socks ruined by wearing them with new, dark, canvas shoes? Definitely. White socks ruined by being washed with my black shirts and dark blue jeans, never.

When she does a load of whites, throw something red in so she finds out why she needs to separate whites from colors.

lol that's bad...

That only teaches why you don't put red clothes in with whites. Quite frankly if you are not the type to give a darn if your white clothes are pure white or a bit dingy then it's fine to mix dark clothes with them. They pretty much stay pale, they just don't stay pure white. However, if you put red in with your whites then you don't get a shirt that is still pretty much white. You get a shirt that is pastel pink. There is a big difference. Also it's important to note that, for whatever reason, red dyes bleed way more than any other dye. A black shirt may bleed once maybe twice but by the third time excess dye is usually pretty much gone. A red shirt will bleed until the day it itself finally comes out pastel pink.

She will regret that dicision when it's done..

probably not. unless there are reds in it. I've been doing my own laundry for almost 10 years. NEVER had an issue mixing blacks and whites lmao. I don't know ANYONE who has.

Stopping discrimination one step at a time...

Laundry: the only time segregation is ok

What about people with a lethal, highly contagious airborne virus?

#26 Then just take Airborne off the shelves. If it's containing some dangerous virus, what's the point?

Quarantine =/= segregation

She'll learn...

She took that way too literally

ummm what do you mean the person who posted or the person doing the laundry... laundry= your the one over looking the joke. The Op= your comment is quite possible.
