O PRETTY SIRENS

Me: You know that new song we're learning? Who's it by?

Boy #1 : Keisha (spelled the way I thought it was)
Me: Ohhh I've never heard of her. Is she black or white?

(simultaneously)
Boy #1 : White!
Boy #2: Black!

~stunned silence~

Boy #1: Nooo! She's Spanish!

Boy #2 (screams): RACIST! You're racist!
Boy #1 chimes along.

Me: That's not what being racist is, DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT RACIST MEANS?!


*blank looks and silence*


Me: It's not racist if you're just saying that a Black person is Black, or a White person's white. It's racist if you're like, she's black; eww I don't like her.

Boy #2: Ohhhhhhhhhhhh.

The funny thing is that in this group of about 20+ kids, there is not a single White person. It's mainly Chinese, with a sprinkling of Indian and Spanish and I am so glad it's like that. They don't know how lucky they are to be in such a diverse bunch. As opposed to ya know being the one minority in a class/school of white kids.
