Gato Got Your Tongue

| Learning | May 23, 2013

(I’m in my third year Spanish class. The class consists of all white students except for one Hispanic male. We just received our most recent exam back and we’re asking around to see how we all did.)

Me: “How’d you do [hispanic student]?

Hispanic Student: “Another D. That’s like my fourth in a row.”

Student #1: “Are you kidding me?! You of all people should be doing well in this class. It’s your native tongue! How do you not have a good grade?”

Student #2: “Hey [Student #1], aren’t you failing English?”

(Student #1 turns bright red and stays silent the rest of the class. The teacher gives Student #2 a high five.)
