“Rahsheba…that is an interesting name”

Rahsheba Major,
Columbia, SC

This was said to me by an unsmiling white female department store cashier, likely around the same age as I, early to mid 40s, at the time, while looking at my brand new SC driver’s license. I had recently moved to South Carolina from Maryland and was applying for the department store’s credit card. Initially stunned into silence, I finally said “I’ll take that as a compliment”.
