I agree with Joel.

Tim's comments remind me of an episode of American Dad in which Stan Smith,
the Dad, goes to sub-Saharan Africa to find his son. He questions a local,
who rhetorically asks, "Do you mean the white boy?" Stan angrily retorts,
"Why is everything always about race with you black people?!"

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
