Aunt: always running through that dang airport. Ugh.
Me: hmmm. Is there a modern day black person who gets the equivalent OJ treatment? Like black, but nobody cares?
Aunt: that boy with the Kardashian girl?
Me: Lamar Odom?
Aunt: nah. Nobody knew who he was before her. That was sad when he was in the hospital. The other boy. The one... His mama died.
Me: Kahn- yay.
