The author is seated at the Ringe and Latin High School graduation in which she is very appreciative in the way that the school shows its pride for multiculturalism through the procession. She reflects back at her high school years in the Midwest where she was 1 of 3 Jews and was taught Orientalism in school as every country East of Greece and characterized the people having “bad” physical characteristics like slanted eyes. Even though she is very happy with the vast change she sees now, she says this with much reservation. This is because she knows that there are fanatics about multiculturalism in which it is hard for a person to write about a culture different than their own without receiving much criticism. She finds it very interesting how the story of “The Fortune Tellers” received so much criticism because the setting didn’t seem realistic. However, old stories can pop up in all sorts of places. While visiting the city of Veso, she saw the scenery described in “Captin Cook”.
