[This might make yesterday's QotD a little clearer. I don't know whether it's from the same column/essay/book/whatever or not, but it does sound like it could be connected.]

"If you grew up white before the civil rights movement anywhere in the South, all grown-ups lied. They'd tell you stuff like, 'Don't drink out of the colored fountain, dear, it's dirty.' In the white part of town, the white fountain was always covered with chewing gum and the marks of grubby kids' paws, and the colored fountain was always clean. Children can be horribly logical." -- Molly Ivins (via Jone Johnson Lewis' collection of quotations on about.com)
