FOWC with Fandango-SCALAWAG
At one of our Thanksgiving dinners
one of the guests leaned back in his chair and said to us:
” Well it looks like I’m officially one of you all now. “
A little puzzled, we asked what he meant. We had known him for years. A few of us had grown up with him.
” I’m a minority like you guys. So that makes me practically family. “
I grimaced. I knew where this was going.
” I’m a white Christian working class man. I’m a minority now. Just like you guys.”
Yes. He really said that.
To a family of Filipinos and Latinos.
With a smile.
A big one.
