Confusion: The Man, Star Wars

1. Austin is learning about The Man when we cross the street. At the intersection where we wait for the light, the pedestrian sign comes up and he says, "It's the white man! The white man says we can go!"

2. The sound of Darth Vader breathing reminds him of snoring, or perhaps how we breathe when we pretend to sleep, so he now turns to me and says, "Darth Vader! We had his cereal! [Pause] He's sleeping."

3. I also haven't really explained lasers to him yet so he thinks everyone fires squirt guns at each other in the Star Wars movies.
