    Your tale reminds me of a short story by Flannery O'Connor.

    To Julian's disappointment, the little boy climbed up on the empty seat beside his mother. His mother lumped all children, black and white, into the common category, “cute,” and she thought little Negroes were on the whole cuter than little white children. She smiled at the little boy as he climbed on the seat.
    It goes downhill from there. Like your mom, Julian's mother is not so fond of the cute little black children's parents.
