As told to me last night by my brother-in-law, Adam:
I was on my way to a barbecue and I didn’t have any beer with me, so I stopped into a convenience store to get some. There was this older rich white guy in there standing at the magazine rack, and he said to the cashier, Tiger Woods just had a kid. He’s married to her [points to photo of wife]. I just wonder what that kid’s going to look like.
And the cashier, a Latina woman, said, Excuse me? What did you just say?
He said, Well, you know, he’s half white, and she’s white, and…[and here Adam added, and… Tiger’s not half white]
The cashier said, He’s going to look like a fucking human being, that’s what he’s going to look like.
Adam said to me, I thought, Yes. Thank you. I felt like I’ve been waiting 34 years to hear someone say that. That’s what I love about this country.
Me too. Happy Fourth of July. And congratulations to the family of Tiger Woods.
