I never knew I was black

When old people have asked me to get something off the shelf for them, I always assumed that it was because I was taller than they are and could reach the product.

But, according to Michelle Obama, it's because I'm black.

“I tell this story – I mean, even as the first lady – during that wonderfully publicized trip I took to Target, not highly disguised, the only person who came up to me in the store was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf. Because she didn’t see me as the first lady, she saw me as someone who could help her.

Hell if I would have known that I could have gotten into Harvard.
