Subject: an over-heard conversation
A (White Australian Female) Teacher is sitting
A (White Australian Female) Student approaches: "Why
are you crying?"
Teacher: Because so many Americans have died.
Student: I have never seen you crying for the boat
people, the Afhganis, 
the Palestinians.
Teacher: But the Americans are like us.
Student: Like us? In what way? Because they speak
English or because they 
have white skin? Well,        Indians speak English
too, and many Lebanese 
are very white.
Teacher: I think you are a socialist.
