  • - Today I learned Lincoln, one of the presidents of the United States, was shot while watching a play.
    - Really?
    - Yes, and Martin Luther King also got shot.
    - Do you know who Martin Luther King was?
    - Yes.
    - Mami, am I African-American?
    - No. You are American.
    - But what am I?
    - Your ethnical background is European, South American and Asian.
    - Do I have to sit in the back of the bus?
    - You know those laws were wrong and people ARE equal regardless of how they look, right?
    - Yes, yes, but if I were to live in the times of Martin Luther King, where would I sit?
