Essay: Say "Yes" The short story by Tobias Wolff, "Say Yes", its about Wife that is arguing aganist her husband's opinion while there washing and drying dishes. The husbands opinion was that blacks should not marry whites and all races should marry the same race.

you had been black we probably wouldn't have met."pg.14.

The Husband wasn't the person that he appeared to be because he worked, lived on the same streets and went to the same school as blacks.
