Woman Accuses Her Friend Of Being Racist For Applying Too Much Sunscreen

Think about the reasons you apply sunscreen. We're sure preventing early aging and skin cancer is high on your list of reasons. Is trying not to look like races other than white another reason on your list? Yeah, we didn't think so. In today's episode of the infamous "Am I the A$$hole?" subreddit, the original poster told fellow Redditors about how her friend accused her of being racist for applying sunscreen regularly. Apparently, the friend was convinced that OP put on sunscreen in order to prevent getting as tan as races that aren't white. Excuse me, what?! Confusion significantly intensified for us. What do y'all think? Scroll down for more context.

Sorry for the confusing title. Obligatory sorry for the formatting, I'm on mobile. In my (20) country, we are allowed to have outdoor gatherings in small groups. I met up with three friends for a picnic. The only one relevant enough to need a fake name is Anna (20F).

Smug Mother Says Racist Slur Repeatedly In Front Of Half-Black Daughter

Intermarriage is much more common than it used to be, and it's a wonderful thing that it has become normalized in society. However, it can be really difficult for parents to understand that their mixed children may experience a completely different upbringing than their own. It doesn't mean they should be treated any differently, but it means they probably have developed much thicker skin than one of their parents would ever require.
