Today, while over at a friend's house, I saw a framed picture of a young African boy on her fridge. I asked, "Oh, is this one of those kids you adopt from third world countries? My grandma does that too." She responded, "What do you mean? That's my cousin." FML

14, you should google "please excuse my dope-ass swag".

Fuzz was just making an observation on how many celebrities adopt children from third world countries, like Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, and made a comment about how maybe OP thought it was a normal thing for someone to do, no need to get snippy, and try and insult them.

How would you confuse a child living in poverty in Africa with a picture of a normal person?

Anything outside the ordinary is considered abnormal. Starving, malnourished children living in a poverty-stricken village with little huts or shacks for houses are definitely outside the ordinary for someone from a first world country. And that's pretty much what the commenter meant, so quit freaking out. Jeez.

Could have been a valid question depending on the situation.

And no one can really be expected to know that if he/she had been previously told. Cousins can look completely different.

Damn you're everywhere! If OP would have just asked that it wouldn't have been a FML, OP's grandma probably had a picture of the kid she adopted and sent money to, so OP wasn't thinking and assumed they did it to, while making an ass out of themselves.
I've seen some of your comments and they all seem the same, like you think your always right when in reality you're far from it.
I'm not trying to be, but just think before you type. Please, and thank you!

Where is the belief that race determines achievement or that one race is superior to another? is your friend. OP's remark was not racist at all.
