I Had A Dream

Struck with a bout of insomnia, I rode out to Mae’s Cafe in Garden Grove. It was surprisingly crowded at 2:30am. I looked around at the customers and workers and I noticed an interesting “coincidence”
workers
It seems all the servers were middle aged/older white ladies, and all the bus boys and cooks were Mexican guys.
customers
Odder still, all the customers were Asian, mostly Vietnamese I think. I tried to think of all the ways this could have happened but decided all possible explanations pointed to a breakdown in the system. Segregation was deprecated as our system long ago, but something went terribly wrong.

I don’t think this is what MLK had in mind.
