ContactMusic.com reports that Mariah Carey often has to scold people for making racially insensitive remarks. The singer, whose mother Patricia is Irish-American, and late father Alfred Roy was African-American said, “I’m in a room a lot of times with only white people, and they forget and say things that are offensive – and I have to put them in check. And I’m sitting there and I’m thinking I’m either going to have to leave or I’m going to have to talk about it. After travelling the world, I think racism, or ignorance, is everywhere. It’s in the US, Italy, France. Even in certain Latin American countries, where it’s a very mixed society.”
