Dinner with the Jaspers is always an experience. On the night before my big little sister headed back to college we did what we did best: eat. Over roast, green beans and an extraordinary dessert, I bring up the look on Mike Myers’ face when Kanye delivered his first ever rant on George Bush not liking Black people. My Pops, always ready to drop jewels, had a story for us.
