But what occurred to me was that there should have been a sketch lamponing the lack of relationship with (brown and black) Others: “as a white person that once had a black neighbor … what, honey? oh, he was Pakistani? Ok, uh, as a white man that once lived near a refugee–what now? I didn’t know he was born here. Uh. Never mind”.
