“I act white?” said Bernie when we were back in the car.

What was this? Bernie white, in some way or other? Couldn’t have been his skin, which was always nice and tan, in that reddish Bernie way. The truth is there’s not much color variety when it comes to humans, not compared to how we roll in the nation within. Take me, for example: mostly black but with one white ear, which I know on account of how many people mention it in my presence. Ever seen a human colored like me? The point is humans go on and on about skin colors when it isn’t even one of their strengths. And they have so many strengths: cars, tennis balls, bacon, and that’s just without even thinking, which is how my mind works best.
