These two were acting like complete teenagers. When I walked up, she was nuzzling her head against his shoulder. She giggled the entire time I talked with them, while he kept a big goofy grin on his face.

"When I moved here, I didn’t speak any English. I started out washing dishes. Then I moved up to prep. Then one day I asked the cook if I could help make the soup, and he said: ‘No, the recipes are in English.’ But I told him, ‘Just show me once, and you’ll never have to show me again.’ So that’s how I started cooking. Now I manage the kitchen. But if my workers ever need help with the dishes, I wash the dishes."

"The army stationed me down South when I was younger, and I couldn’t even use the same bathroom as white people. But things have changed so much. The younger generation isn’t nearly as racist. I’ve been sitting here for fifty years. So much has changed. This neighborhood used to be all black. A white person couldn’t even walk down this street. All the races kept to themselves. Now you’ve got Indians talking to Pakistanis, blacks talking to whites, everybody is here and learning from each other’s cultures. I’ve been sitting here for 50 years. Things are getting better."
