Race Relations

“Ms Mac! Bob’s* making fun of me because I’m fat!” Squealed one of my Inupiat students.

“No! Ms Mac! Only cause Tom’s* making fun of my because I’m white.” Responded a student of a paler complexion.

“Well, you are white!” Tom retaliated.

“Well, you are fat!” Bob screeched.

“Oh yeah? At least there’s nothing wrong with being fat!”

I just stared, at a complete loss for words.
I love my class.
