It’s 2:00 a.m. These are the very important thoughts (VIT) keeping me awake:
VIT: Is it racist to think black people are beautiful?
Me: No…. Yes…. I don’t know.
VIT: Cuz, like, sometimes you see a really old black person and they are really beautiful.
VIT: Ok, like you see ancient white people and they just look terrible. But black people, they just look beautiful all the time, even when they are 90.
Me: I really don’t think we should be talking about this.
VIT: Because of the sun.
VIT: They have better sun tolerance.
Me: Ok, fine, black people are beautiful and have good, sun-resistant skin.
