A couple of Harvard students in their twenties walk into the store. ”No, I’m not interested in the stupid inauguration. I’m so tired of listening to people go on and on about him being the first Black President. People forget that he’s also, technically, the first Asian President.”
"I know, right?" says the other guy. "But I read an article about how the Asians won’t claim him because he looks more Black than Asian."
This goes on for approximately two minutes while I bite my tongue harder and harder until I can’t will myself to remain quiet anymore. ”By any chance,” I ask them, “are you two confusing Barack Obama with Tiger Woods?”
"No, I—" starts one.
"Oh my god, we are IDIOTS." says the second one.
"Shhh. We can never talk about this again. THIS NEVER HAPPENED."
