Interesting Morals

The Sudanese Thinker:

A few nights ago I was at a party and networking function for social entrepreneurs. The MC’s accent sounded American to my ears and so during the break, I approached, curious to know which part of the United States she was from. Stupid move. The reply was very defensive.

“I am not American. Not American. I am not from the United States. I’m Canadian.”

Damn. I would have taken it as a compliment.

The second story is even crazier.



Someone in middle school got that reaction when a friend of mine from Ecuador was called a Mexican. He went from passive dude, to nearly psychotic like that. In fact, I think his reaction was about similar to the reaction you'd get from most blacks in America if you called them a certain word that begins with an "n."
