One quick addendum to my previous post on being racist. While watching the Masters, Dean looked at Jason Day, one of the front runners, and said, “He looks Filipino.”
I replied, “Maybe, or at least some kind of ethnic mix.” I googled him to find out that he certainly is half Filipino (from Australia) and from them on, we were rooting for him to win. Over any of the American players. Over anyone else. Again, totally racist, right?!
I’ve been under the weather lately and trying to rise from this cloud of fatigue that’s been plaguing me since Monday. The Boston Marathon bombings have only worsened my mood as I have to grab tissue every time I read an article or see pictures. My heart goes out to the victims.
