Good one Helen.

How we whites become racist by age twelve or earlier is pertinent to now. It's in the air. We breathe it in, in America.

My parents would have been appalled if I had brought home a black girlfriend, even though my father financed many a black person's education even when he didn't have the wherewithal to do it.

Separate but equal was not voiced but assumed.

Thank you for looking inside your heart.
