Mrs. Charlie: You know, with all he's done, if Obama were white, people would be jumping for joy.
Billanthrope: Well, the Republicans would still hate him.
Mrs. Charlie: I'm not talking about them. I'm talking about all the people who call themselves "moderates" and "independents."
Billanthrope: Liberals seem to be hating on him a lot lately, too.
Mrs. Charlie: We all have our problems with him, of course. I've just been noticing lately that people keep complaining about how he's not doing anything. But he's actually done a lot. It's just no one is giving him credit for what he's done. And I'm just starting to think it's because he's black.
Billanthrope: Well, Mrs. Charlie, we black folks are raised to believe that even if we're twice as good as white people, we still won't be considered an equal--or something along those lines.
Mrs. Charlie: I guess I'm finally starting to come around to that way of thinking. I guess it's because I'm white.
Billanthrope: I guess we should be getting back to work, shouldn't we, Mrs. Charlie?
Mrs. Charlie: Good idea, Bill.
