Terrence,

Thank you for sharing this. I also grew up in Texas. I’m ashamed to admit that I remember some (not all) of my white friends and family making under-their-breath comments about other races to each other.

As a kid that was so confusing to me. How could a person be so kind to a black person when together, then make cutting remarks behind their back?

As I’ve watched the racial tension rise over the past few years I’ve been asking myself: are people becoming more racist, or has it always been there, just hidden from view. I think it’s the latter.
