That Asian Mom Is Not The Nanny, But We Are Too Lazy To Prove That Fact
Ezinne Ukoha

I don’t know whether there were different editions of the video, but in the one I saw the little girl addressed her as “mommy” when she complained about the way she was being hurried. That pretty much removed any doubt as far as I can see. Is it really an issue? I have visited the area and many families have Nannies, be they mixed race, local or European. If someone in England confused a Nanny with a Mother, would it do more than amuse or bemuse? What is the difference because it is in Asia? I don’t see how it racist or offensive to be uncertain of status.
