A typical conversation between the White* sisters.

*White is our last name, which happens to coincide with our race. In this case it is only referencing the former.

Sister: Have you ever listened to Santa-Gold?

Me: Never heard of it.

Sister: <Spouts off lyrics that mention “gift” and “gold” and “wishes”>

Me: I don’t know what that is.

Sister: Here I’ll play some.

<Music playing>

Me: Is it Christmas music?

Sister: No… Santigold is a black woman from Brooklyn…

Me: That makes a lot more sense.
