I Thought Strokis Was a Black Man

I’m going to keep this quick, because it really isn’t that big a deal. I do feel like it needs to be said, though.

Up until I saw his picture photo-shopped onto The Last Supper, I was under the impression that Strokis was a black man. Aiden had told me a number of stories from school, about both Strokis and his black roommates. Somehow, in my mind Strokis became one of those roommates. Not Idris, but the roommate, whose name it appears I do not remember. I was shocked and horrified to find out Strokis is white. It goes to show how little I listen when Aiden speaks.
