The eyes of hate were upon us or were they really?
At first I just thought that it must have been interesting to see an older woman sitting next to a handsome young man, who could have been his grandmother. Then I realized why and a few tears tricked down my cheek. The young men at our table were black. And while they were wearing suits, they were after all, black. Wonder if people even cared that one of the young man owned his own insurance company and was a model father, while the other one made a six figure salary. In retrospect, I wonder if it would have mattered to the gawkers that sitting at the table they were staring at were three master’s degrees, a Juris doctorate, and two BAs. Nope, don’t think knowing those realities would have stopped the gawkers…sad, but true.
Oops, never mind. They were probably just in awed at the beautiful, diverse, and well dressed group enjoying each other’s company.
