I THINK HE’S ONE

3534516458_48e4e8595fI think he’s one.

What difference does it make?

None. Personally, I don’t care one way or the other.

Then why’d you mention it?

Why can’t I? It’s just an observation. I’m just making an observation, that’s all.

But if it doesn’t make a difference why are you “observing” it?

Why shouldn’t I?

Because, you just said, it makes no difference.

But it doesn’t.

Here we go again!

No. What’s your point? What is your point? What’s wrong with what I said?

Here’s what’s wrong with what you said. To see a difference is to discriminate! The definition of discriminate is to see a difference.

Wait a minute! Just because I can tell what a person is does not mean I am going to discriminate against them. Seeing a difference and acting on a difference are two completely different things.

Are they?

Of course they are!

If it doesn’t make a difference, why talk about it! If you sit down and categorize every single person you see as anything: Black or white, Jew or Gentile, Gay or Straight, Muslim or Christian, Man or Woman, Caribbean or African American, or anything, you are discriminating. And that’s wrong, plain wrong!

You know, you say some of the damnedest things?

Listen. Can we just drop it? Can we drop it? Can we agree to disagree?

Sure. That’s fine by me?

Let’s talk about something else. Okay?

Okay. But can I say just one thing?

What?

I think he is one!
