    I thought it meant trying to decide how many sandwiches to order!

    Technically he was “quadroon” meaning he was 1/4 black. ( Like myself ) Still amazing that he accomplished so much with the discrimination in his time. Since they referenced The Count of Monte Cristo, I would assume they were speaking of the father.

    His father held the rank of general in Napolean’s army. Inspiration of his stories.

    I’m guessing she’s writing about the father, since he’s the one who wrote The Count of Monte Cristo. Thanks to this comic I read up on both. It’s fascinating, seeing the interplay of art and personal relationships in those two writers’ lives.

    “Why do people need to categorize successful people???”


    It’s about providing role models.
    Whenever Person A tells Person B “People like you will never amount to anything,” it’s important that both A and B learn that the statement is untrue.
