Famous vs. Skin Color

Here's a cute little story I just can't get outta my head. First, I must share that my younger brother has been in a few commercials/television shows aside from his pretty cool day job. Now for the story...One day last week when I picked up the kids from school, Elizabeth gets into the car and announces that her teacher told her that this month is Black History Month. Elizabeth: My teacher says we have to write about someone famous. Mom: Really? That's cool. Elizabeth: Yeah, I'm gonna write about Uncle Mikey. Mom: Umm, Elizabeth... Uncle Mikey isn't black. Elizabeth: But he's famous... and famous is better than being black!
