Obama Rice

We're at the grocery store yesterday and Gavin asks, "Mom, can we pleeeeze get the Barack Obama rice today?" 

I ignored him, and continued to read the ingredients on a box of couscous. 

He continued.  "Please mom.  You never buy Barack Obama rice.  Can we please get Barack Obama rice?" 

I finally realized what he was asking.  "What in the world are you talking about?"

He points up at a box of Uncle Ben's rice.  Really?  wth?  I was cracking up.  President's are on money....why not rice boxes?  

This is coming from the same kid who saw a picture of Bin Laden and shouted "Santa!"  Far from it kid.  I'm trying not to read to much into his horrible observations.

Back in the day, our pizza delivery guys were, 9 times out of 10, African American. One day in the grocery store I saw a black man and exclaimed, "Mom! Look! The pizza guy!" Talk about racial profiling - my mom has yet to let me live it down. =)
