Me: I’m still in shock.
Friend back in NY: It’s crazy, right?
Me: Is this the feeling white people walk around with their whole lives? Like throughout history?
F: I know what you mean. I stood up for the National Anthem the other day.
Me: Word? Hand over the heart, and all that? Damn, everything has changed…hasn’t it?
Me: We’re gonna need a whole new vocabulary to talk about America…
F: For real. I feel so damn motivated. I feel like I’m incapable of procrastination right now.
Me: Yeah. I feel so…man. This is ridiculous! Every time I see him I feel so damn proud I start crying.
Friend: Yeah, it’s crazy!
