race relations

sam (the future diplomat) has been telling me all about chinese people lately. he thinks anyone who has black hair and speaks another language is chinese. (more likely hispanic here, but oh well.)

so yesterday we're at the park and sam comes to tell me that "there's a chinese guy over there! i can tell because he's old." a few minutes later the "chinese" guy walks past us and sam says, "see, there's the japanese guy!" then he turns to the guy and says, "adios!" the guy turns around and smiles at sam.

My kids think everyone is mexican and everyone who speaks a different language is speaking spanish. Yesterday at walmart there was a famil of Arabs infont of us and Porter heard them talking, rushes over to me and pointing at them says "They're talkin' spanish". I think they were less than amused.
