Nonna: I heard of on the news the black women havin a hard time getting married in Korea…why it is?
Me: Um? What?
Nonna: The black women in Korea.
Me: I didn’t think there were a lot of black women in Korea…maybe its because Korean men like to marry Korean women?
Nonna: I don think you understand on me…the (pause) black (pause) women (pause) in (pause) KO-RE-RE-A.
Nonna: Korea…like doctors, lawyers….
Me: CAREER? Like, black women in CAREERS?
Nonna: Its what I say.
Me: No…you said Korea…like a country.
Nonna: What is Korea?
Me: Its in Asia.
Nonna: No honey, there are no black people in Asia I don think.
