Indian, Pakistani, It’s All Greek To Her

| Related | December 16, 2015

(I am an observer walking directly behind this conversation, which takes place outside of a gym with a pool. A mother walks out with her two daughters. The daughters are holding towels to towel off after swimming. The older daughter wraps her towel around her like a toga.)

Daughter: “Look, Mom, isn’t this toga pretty?”

Mother: *in a disgusted voice* “How can anything Indian be pretty?”

Daughter: “Mom! A toga isn’t even Indian.”

Mother: “Fine. Pakistani!”

Daughter: *jaw drops* “It’s what men wore in ANCIENT ROME AND GREECE.” *mumbling* “Why are you so ignorant and racist?”
