I, Racist
John Metta

I can certainly understand your point from a personal standpoint for two reasons: 1. I have a dark-skinned Latino son-in-law, who has educated me about ‘driving while brown’ and other things, and 2. Because I have been the victim of reverse racism, just once, but that has been enough to stay with me for 50 years! I went to an all-black party with a friend and was asked if I were from the California Hotel, which was where the local hookers hung out, since I was the only white girl there. I honestly don’t know how so many of you manage to keep it together in this horrid society dealing with this kind of treatment. I am quite sure that if I had been born black, I would not have survived my twenties, maybe not even my teens!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
