Unexpected conversations

Exchange in a grocery store queue between an elderly white man (me) and a younger African American :

”What do you think of Brexit?”

Me: “ Put it this way, it is the greatest disaster since William the Conqueror invaded England and brought with him Continental feudalism.  It took centuries to repair the damage”.

African American: “ That’s better than we’ve managed in the US.  We still haven’t gotten rid of feudalism”.
