Me: We left off last time in a hurry
You: Did we?
You: You ended the conversation, as I recall.
Me: Oh yeah. You’re absolutely right. I had to do something.
Me: Do you get the impression republican constituents are dumb?
You: (staring in disbelief) Do you know that I am republican?
You: Yes, really.
Me: Well, I’ve always seen you as dumb. Pause.
Me: You just prove my point.
Me: is this an exercise of freedom of speech by any chance?
You: Just out of curiosity, why do you make such ridiculous statements?
You: Before you answer that, tell me, are you democrat?
Me: Not at all. I think they’re dumb too but republicans are dumber, don’t you think?
You: Back to my first question, why do you think republicans are dumb, dumber than democrats?
Me: Where do I begin?
You: Begin anywhere, please.
Me: Well, let me ask you a question.
You: Nope, answer mine first. You’re trying to evade the question.
Me: I am not. I want to answer it in a conversational approach.
Me: I don’t want to sound discriminatory.
You: (raising the voice) Are you kidding me????
You: What’s your question?
Me: Calm down. We are just conversing. There is no reason to get upset.
You: (raising the voice) I am not upset. I am … I am…
You: I am a bit upset by your ridiculous statement.
Me: Are you looking for an apology?
You: (pause) of course I am, and you should.
Me: allright, let me make my point.
You: So, you’re not going to apologize?
Me: About … ?
You: It’s folks like you that ….
Me: That what?
Me: Are you insulting me because I am black?
You: (raising the voice) Don’t you change the subject?
You: Don’t try…
You: Is that a calling card?
Me: Being insulted?
You: No. first of all, I did not insult you
You: second, you’re just trying to avoid to answer the question.
Me: What’s the question?
You: You know what, forget it.
You: I don’t have that kind of time to waste.
Me: Oh mine, look at the time. I have to go.
Me: We’ll catch up tomorrow.
