Response to Original message
2. I sympathize.
I wasn't very close to my mother for a variety of reasons and I would have to bite my tongue when she would refer to Asians as "yangs" or when she'd say something like, "He's a Jew but he's OK". I really wanted to go off on her but I was afraid that alot of other things would come gushing forth. I don't have any advice for you, just wanted to say that I've been there.
