My significant other and I were at a party with two other couples. The first couple are both Chinese. They’re married and have two boys. The second couple is a Caucasian guy married to a Filipino/Chinese woman. They’re also married and have two boys. All the kids are roughly the same age. At the party I accidently confused one of the boys from the second couple with a child from the first. The child’s father gave me a dirty look and implied I was being a racist for the confusion.
I don’t think I was being racist. Both of the couples are people we see perhaps twice a year. I’ve met their children only a handful of times in my entire life and couldn’t identify any of them if I saw them anywhere else.
I’m rather upset with his implication. Are either of us overreacting? I certainly didn’t mean to hurt his feelings.
