Half-People

So, while I was buying a six of Fat Tire yesterday, I got carded. No big deal. The cashier is making some chit-chat asking if I get carded a lot, and when I respond in the affirmative, she says something about "yeah, us half people look young." I'm not sure what she meant - I think she was saying those of us of mixed "race." She looked Native American to me. While pondering the meaning, I thought it'd have been ironic if she meant that I was a half person since I was a minority, a second class citizen. Of course, that doesn't really fit in the context of the conversation, but it's much more interesting than her guessing that I was multi-racial . . .
