(My mom has this conversation in the grocery store. Bear in mind, we are white and have traced our ancestry back to Germany and Ireland, and my mom is your typical Irish lass: Red hair, green eyes, pale skin, and freckles. She gets a lot of comments on her looks.)

Black Man: “I like your freckles.”

Mom: “Thank you.”

Black Man: “Do you think that’s black pigmentation?”

Mom: *confused* “Um, what?”

Black Man: “You could be a light version of us.”
