A Strange Moment Involving Race, at the Grocery Store
Walking in the grocery store today, I did a double-take when I saw an Asian guy wearing a “Virginia Tech” hoodie.
I don’t know if he actually went to VT, or whether he wore that deliberately for the effect it would have. I just know that moments after the double-take, I felt a bit weird for having such an awkward pause. It sorta felt like I had racially profiled someone in the Nabisco aisle.
Add to the mix that I’m Asian myself, and it just gets a bit weirder.
