I wouldn’t be surprised if the guy just watched White Dog recently

Just to play devil's advocate, my wife's previous dog absolutely lost her shit around black people. Not just overly aggressive barking, but baring her teeth, making Cujo look like a kitten type evil. She was a rescue so who knows went on before my wife got her, but it's apparently a real thing.

Of course, in the case above, instead of advertising it and sounding like a racist douche, just lock the dog up when the maid is there.

I don't think this is particularly unusual. My mother had a dog that didn't like dark-skinned people, both African-Americans and Latinos, and would go crazy whenever she saw one. (The dog, not my mother.) I've had quite a few people tell me they've had similar experiences with their dogs.

It was really kind of awkward, because I'd be sitting in the car with that dog, and she wouldn't do anything until a black person walked by, then she'd start barking and lunging at the window.

I googled that a while back, and couldn't find a satisfying explanation as to why some dogs are racist.

I read that it has to do with dogs color blindness and visual recognition but the catholic preacher just sounds like an asshole
