Lunch among the third-graders

Chloe: God wants you to eat healthy food
White Girl: I don't believe in God
Other Girl: *disbelieving* Are you serious?
White Girl: I believe in Ganesh. That's India's god.
Other Girl: Are you Indian?
White Girl: No.
Chloe: Are your ancestors Indian?
White Girl: What does 'ancestors' mean?
Chloe: It means your aunts' sisters.
White Girl: I only have one aunt. She lives in LA.
Other Girl: Well, you'll have to be really good to go to heaven, then.
White Girl: I'm not going to heaven. *thinks for a minute* But I'm going to LA this summer.
