Cultural Awareness Runs Amok

I saw this on www.onlyinnewyork.com and laughed out loud. I am usually so focued on the seriousness of cultural and racial diversity that I miss the humor-but this sure hit home for me.

"Her" People Love Fashion at a Bargain

Older woman: Excuse me, miss?
Younger woman: Yeah?
Older woman: Your veil, your burqa is very beautiful. I didn't know your people were allowed to wear it in bright colors.
Younger woman: It's not a burqa, it's a poncho. I'm Jewish. It's for the rain. I got it at TJ Maxx.

Sometimes we all just try too hard.

I hope this makes you laugh-and think!
