As part of my gig I get to teach a couple of college courses each semester. Some of them are on really cool topics, like working in a multicultural society. Tonight, as I was discussing how the media portrays minorities, I brought up the example of Tonto.
There were 35 vacant eyes staring back at me.
For the first time ever, I was in front of a group of students so young they had no reference for Tonto.
God damn it, I'm old.
