I had dinner with a racist last night. This is how it went.

Last night I went out for pizza at UNION, a fantastic restaurant in my town of Evanston, Illinois. It’s known for bringing the community together.

There was an outdoor concert in full swing nearby, so finding a seat in the beer garden was pretty hard to do.

A woman apparently noticed me scanning the seat-yourself tables, then generously invited my date and me to join hers.

“We have room for you over there,” she said, pointing toward her husband.
