Today, in the middle of the meal, an elderly black man began singing (very very badly!) a funk/disco song that I recognized instantly.
I called out: "Hey I know that song!"
The african american attendant said with a big smile to me: "Please don't encourage him, most people here can't take that singing!"
The elderly singer came over to me put his hand on my shoulder and said: "You know why HE (the attendant) doesn't know the song don't you?"
"Why is that?" I asked
"Because he isn't REALLY black!" the man replied
me-"Well then , how do you explain that I KNOW the song?!"
(This question leaves the singer speechless;)
