Matt enters the previous scene
GRACE: Matt, come hear what Samira did to this girl who made the mistake of getting her ethnicity wrong.
MATT: I’ll have to hear it later. You guys will never believe what just happened.
MATT: Ok, so I was trying to study
SAMIRA: But not succeeding.
MATT: Quiet you. I was string to study in my room, and all of a sudden I hear all this commotion in the hall. So I look out and there are all these campus police officers gathered around someone’s room. Of course I can’t study will all the noise (eye rolling, a look) so I go down to check it out. And that’s when I see it.
GRACE: See what?
MATT: The white board on the door says “Dirty Chink sucks white cock”
SAMIRA: Who would write something like that?
GRACE: Whose door was it anyway?
MATT: Kimberly Park’s.
SAMIRA: Isn’t she Korean?
GRACE: She has a white boyfriend right?
MATT: Yes, and yes, but do racist bastards really care whether they’re getting someone’s ethnicity right?
SAMIRA: Well no. So what are they going to do? Do they know who it is? Are they going to make an announcement?
MATT: I’m not sure. It looks like they’re investigating and they’re going ot keep this thing under wraps for a while.
SAMIRA: Why? People deserve to know what’s going on on campus. Especially if it’s something like this!
MATT: I’m not sure, an image thing I guess. They’re probably doing PR work right now. I mean what if this gets out. People might not think we’re a liberal, diverse, accepting school anymore. They might think we’re not safe. And then what would happen to the minority numbers they’re trying to boost? Those would go down the tube.
GRACE: They can’t keep it a secret for long though. People talk.
SAMIRA: Maybe that’s what they’re counting on word of mouth so they don’t have to say anything. Until it all blows over of course.
MATT: Do you really think it’s going to blow over?
SAMIRA: Not really.
GRACE: Who do you think did it?
SAMIRA: A white guy probably.
GRACE: Or a white girl
MATT: Why white?
SAMIRA: Isn’t it obvious? An Asian would have gotten her ethnicity right, and also would never have written “Chink”. And no one else would care. I mean what does a Black or Hispanic person care if a Korean girl is dating a white guy. It doesn’t make sense.
GRACE: None of it makes sense. Has this ever happened before?
SAMIRA: Plenty of times
GRACE: I mean here
MATT: Not that I know of.
SAMIRA: Although plenty could have happened before our time that we don’t know about. This school is great about covering things up.
MATT: Aww, Samira don’t be bitter
SAMIRA: Bitter? At the way students of color are treated? Never
GRACE: Don’t forget women! Remember that rape cover-up?
GRACE: Yeah you do, the year before we got here. It was the only thing anyone could talk about during spring open campus
SAMIRA: I didn’t come for open campus. I was accepted early decision.
MATT: And I was just lazy. What happened?
GRACE: Apparently it was a date rape. One girl was raped by one of her classmates. Giant scandal, especially since the guy[s father is an alum and a HUGE donor to the school.
SAMIRA: It’s always the rich ones isn’t it.
MATT: What happened?
GRACE: He quietly left the school, and she was all but told that she’s be expelled if it came out.
SAMIRA: So she couldn’t take him to court?
SAMIRA: Sounds like he got off easy.
GRACE: Guys always do. No offense Matt.
MATT: I fully admit to my male privilege…and my white privilege.
SAMIRA: Ah the new age enlightened white male.
