Even when faced with racial discrimination, some people are able to take delight in cultural differences — and defuse prejudice with humor — like Anna Choi, a Korean-American, and her son, Sam. Their story is the latest in our series of conversations about race.

    This was a great conversation. I can tell that Anna and Sam have a great relationship. They have a great sense of humor, and you can tell Sam is a very smart boy.

    Two wonderful and incredibly talented people. It is a privilege to know them.

    I heard this today while driving with my 6 year old daughter — and we were both listening closely and laughed out loud a few times. I was thrilled to think that she was appreciating content like this (rather than demanding I put on the GLEE CD!). Sam & Anna – thanks for a great “teaching moment” with my own child.

    This story made me happy. With intelligence, humor, and mom on his side, I’m sure Sam will be able to handle whatever life throws at him (including ignorant and hurtful people).
