Skin Confusion

During free time at the end of the day on Friday, I showed the students a rhythm I know how to do using a cup. It's a fairly standard drum beat with some flash sprinkled in...they loved it, and the following conversation ensued. We enter...

R: "Dang Mr. A, that was tight boy!"

B: "Yea, how you do that beat with that mug? You straight got rhythm!"

R: "You must be mixed huh Mr. A?"

Mr. A: "Why do you say that R?"

R: "Cause ain't no white person got rhythm like that, so I thought you was mixed."

B: "Are you high boy? How you gonna say something that boosey? Look at Mr. A...if that ain't white..."

Mr. A: "Yeah, hate to break it to you R...but I am white."
