Today, was the first day my grandma has seen me since I started going to tanning beds. She is now considering taking me out of her will because I look like "a damn Indian". FML

your grandma sounds great

Hmmm.....if you are looking that dark, you may want to lay off the tanning a bit. Sounds like you may be overdoing it.

Well, I could be wrong... But, the phrase 'a damn Indian' does seem to sound racist.

How does wanting to cut someone out of your will because they look indian not sound racist?

26: Okay, let's do an experiment. Would you consider it homophobic if the grandmother would've written OP out of the will for being homosexual? After all, they didn't explicitly state that homosexuality would be something bad. All the grandmother did was punish the OP for this specific thing. The only reason one could argue that it wasn't racist, is because humans only have one race, homo sapiens. Even then, this means nothing but semantics. The grandmother considers punishing OP for looking like an Indian, which is, in fact, a derogatory statement about people of such color.

For the record, "homosapien" isn't a race, it's a species. Human beings belong to the mammalian species "homosapien" in the family Hominidae.

I know, it's just funny. Crazy shitty world we live in :( cant even sing bah bah black sheep anymore!

#38, for current generations in their teens, 20s, 30s, that's probably the correct interpretation. Most of us, thankfully, don't automatically assume something is racist or say racist things spitefully. For someone who grew up in codified racism, like the grandma, it's probably racism.

If I didn't care at all I wouldn't upvote good videos on YouTube. I just happen to not care regarding fml votes or some other sites. But yes Master of Rhetorician I could have worded that different.

You know, there's a messaging service that would work wonders for you two, 43 & 46.

55, but then they wouldn't get to show us all how little they care by announcing it repeatedly, and we can't have that!

Maybe she thinks you have all that casino money

What if she meant the other Indians? The ones from India.

How is that racist.

Feather Indian or red dot Indian?

YDI for using tanning beds. sorry about your grandma though

Tanning beds give you cancer.

so does tomatoes, talking on the phone, using certain shampoos, eating nuts... oh and breathing toxins!!

but not as fast as tanning beds
