The Gift of the Elephant

No white folks in this story. That fact just occurred to me, so I re-read the manuscript to make sure. Nope. None.
The story received a Pushcart nomination from the literary journal in which it first appeared. I’m white. Who knows what color the editor of the journal was who nominated the story.
Two of my stories have received Pushcart nominations, this and another one. The other won received a Special Mention from Pushcart. That story involved an issue of race. This one doesn’t. Just no white folks in it.
Interesting, is all I’m saying.
