    The sort of person like your grandmother, who wants to be accommodating and race-conscious (to some degree) from a different era can use language and habits that seem quite jarring to us now.

    And it seems to me that such a person, transplanted to now, would alter those habits and language to keep with the times, at least in some degree. It can be painful to us to find that what we thought of as good manners isn’t, at least not any more. But this is a small price to pay, I think.

    Thanks, I liked this.Report

    I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
