(A student in my class walks in about three minutes late. It is important to know that this student is black.)

Teacher: (Student’s name), you are late.

Student: No I’m not. My backpack was here.

Teacher: But your backpack isn’t you, is it?

(The student’s backpack is black.)

Student: (pause) Well it kinda looks like me, doesn’t it?
