Talking Dictionary902. Race Together—A National Conversation


902. Gordon walked into Moonbucks, stated his name, and ordered a HatteLatte. Presently, an associate walked over to Gordon's table, sat down, presented the drink, and smiled. Gordon said thanks. The associate said, "Gordon, call me Harris, please. Can we talk?" Gordon said, "Uh, yeah, I guess. I'm not gay, by the way." Harris laughed. "Sorry. Me neither. Not that there's anything—this is about your cup. See what it says there? 'Race Together.' So, you're black. I'm white. We can talk about it, if you'd like." Gordon asked, "What's there to talk about?" Harris said, "Race! You know, I'm a white guy, you're a black guy." Gordon said, "Oh, I see. Even though our color is different, we're both males, and we both live in Queens." Harris said, "There you go. We do have a lot in common. Okay. I've got to get back to work. Thanks for sharing!" 2.1
