(Samira is on an airplane reading a novel in French)
WOMAN: Vous étés française?
SAMIRA: Non, je suis américaine.
WOMAN: Mais, vous parlez français.
WOMAN (switching to accented English): But how do you know French.
SAMIRA: I studied it in school.
WOMAN: But you are American.
SAMIRA: School in Canada.
WOMAN: Why were you in Canada.
(There is silence while Samira tries to go back to reading her book.)
Samira looks at her.
WOMAN: You must not be fully American.
SAMIRA: I'm fully American. It says so on my passport.
WOMAN: But you're a little dark. So. Spanish? Italian?
SAMIRA: German actually.
WOMAN: German. Odd.
SAMIRA: Meine Familie ist von Stuttgart.
WOMAN: Ah bien.
Samira goes back to reading. Woman looks at her confused.
