Jon Snow: You have your mother’s eyes.
Harry Potter: You must be Ned Stark’s bastard.
Those are the two things people say to them the most.
and i hate when black people make fun of white parents talking to their children and explaining things to their children instead of beating them. because yeah, a lot of white kids are very disrespectful. but that has nothing to do with the fact that they didn’t receive corporeal punishment.
I think I was lucky because my dad was so adamant that no one in my family hit me as a way to reprimand me as a child. And even in the few instances that I was, I remember being more frightened of getting hit than actually understanding what had caused that punishment. Anytime anyone sat me down…
That’s all I think about this.
