People Who Look Like Me

The other day, Ethan asked me, "Mom, why are so many of the people on TV white?" The more I've thought about that question since then, the more I can see why he asked it. In his world 98% of the people are NOT white. And that's been true of most of his existence. When we lived in China, we signed him up for Little League Soccer at the international school. We got lost getting there, so it took us an hour and a half. We walked on the field to see giant white men coaching lots of mostly little white kids. Ethan looked at me and said, "Did we drive to America?"

Oh, they are so thoroughly third culture.
