Set conversation: Important white studio photographer (IWSP for short): I love black people. I really do. I think they are the most...absolute coolest.
Me: [continuing to arrange the shoes onset into a clever composition, for a major fashion mag shoot we are doing]
IWSP: I just think that being a black guy is the ultimate...i mean, they have so much swagger and style....and hip hop...Honestly, I really wish I was a black guy
Me: bet you didn't want to be a black guys when you interviewed for your job [while continuing to put the final touched on the gravity defying shoes arranged on set]
Over all silence.......
Me: [looking up at IWSP] OK, this as ready to be shot.
