Is this racist? A white cat called Kizzy?
(In the 70's my parents had watched and enjoyed Roots. A short time later they got a pure white cat they called Kizzy. Roots was on too late for me to watch, besides it would have been inappropriate for a child my age then. I never worried about Kizzy the cat until years later when I read Roots.
I was raised more race-unaware than being taught about racism. One of my dad's closest friends was black. We had black people who lived around us, I went to school with black kids. I was just never taught that they were any different. So I'm not really sure if Kizzy was a racist cat. (I did go out with a black woman named Kizzy later.)
