After almost 3 months taking my children to school every day and being treated as a museum exhibit while doing so, today it was just too much.
I really couldn't cope anymore with being called out with the same questions, every, single day. Obviously I made an utter fool of myself while getting caught up in the moment ... and probably just made it worse now.
Is this what they call reverse racism?
I once again made a fool of myself, as I probably should just have left my daughter waiting for the bus with the other children.
Obviously the bus arrived 5 minutes after we left with the motorbike.
In hindsight, I totally understand the local people's reaction. Everyone is, probably, concerned about getting their children to school on time. Yet, I have the choice to take the motorbike and drive my daughter to school. By doing so, I only confirmed white privilege ... which I'm really regretting now. It feels like reality just slapped me in the face with a concrete brick.
