The Falkes family of Stone Brook, Indiana, was shocked to discover that son Jason Falkes’ girlfriend is an African American. The family found out when Jason brought his girlfriend Elana home last night for Thanksgiving.
The family was quick to accept Jason’s girlfriend, only expressing behind closed doors how strange they thought it was for Jason to have never mentioned Elana’s race. “I’m not saying I have an issue with it,” said Robert Falkes, Jason’s father. “I just don’t understand why he’s never brought this up before. It’s something I would’ve liked to know.”
Jason and Elana made it home in time for the Falkes family’s weekly “Monday Movie Night,” which was uncomfortable for everyone since the movie they had scheduled was Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.
“I guess I shouldn’t be thinking so much of it,” said Hannah Falkes, Jason’s mother. “I know we raised Jason not to see color, it’s just not what I was picturing.”
This morning Hannah emailed all who would be joining the Falkes family for Thanksgiving about Elana so that everyone else could have fair warning. Hannah’s brother Mitch, however, is unreachable since he doesn’t know how to operate a computer, and Mitch is the relative who Hannah is most worried about. Mitch often spends Thanksgiving complaining about immigrants, President Obama and how it’s unfair that “those people get a whole Friday to themselves.”
