me - you - them


Party last night. Unlike in the movies, it was nearly totally segregated with white people talking to white people and black people talking to black people. Some general mixing, but not much. I spent more of my time talking to an Australian woman than anyone else. Quite self-consciously I spoke with a black couple while we ate.

I stayed with what was most familiar - or at least what I imagined would be most familiar - a white Australian woman and a white British woman. I knew I was doing it but I was feeling lazy.
