“He wittered about our species being suited to live in extended families and tribes just like in the old days so I thought he was dead,” explained a Native American this afternoon.
Dead people can’t talk and certainly not witter.
“Dead people enter the heavenly kingdom of God and can talk and witter all they want. I thought you came from a Christian culture where the resurrection is less strange than the idea of death as the end.”
I do. Granted. But I still don’t see why you thought he was dead just because he was talking about our ability to live in extended families and why you caged him in.
“But I understand why.”
Only you understand why. You are the ethnic minority. You should know.
“My skin is brown.”
That’s my point exactly.
