Last week my daughter had a very interesting workshop on « differences ».  They read a story about an animal that was different from the others and, I guess you can imagine the rest of it. They all discussed afterwards and the teacher asked them to give examples of differences. Well one little boy said that Barack Obama was different because… he had no hair!  Never mind that he’s black or the first African American president. What struck this little boy as different was Barak Obama’s hair (or lack thereof!). Ah! May we all become as colour blind as him some day!
