| USA | Learning | August 11, 2016

(I am in a scheduling counselor meeting. There is one kid whose parents are quite wealthy and feel that he has the right to joke and mess around. It should be noted that he is white.)

Counselor: “Within the ‘Cultural Exploration’ category, we have several electives that you can take, such as ‘Study of Islam’ and ‘Black Studies’—”

Boy: *loudly, interrupting the counsellor* “What about ‘White Studies’?”

Counselor: *without missing a beat* “That’s called history.”
