I have asked the same questions as you, Hattie. I lived in a completely white environment until I was 15. However, I had already made up my mind re: the racial issues so prevalent in the 60s. So when I finally came in contact with blacks, I had no problem except that some blacks were mistrustful (justifiably so) of my preppy white bread demeanor.

Some of thr reactions I've had when they got to know me have been hysterical but always came down to that sterotyping is wrong, wrong, wrong.

I wish we would all think of each other as people first. I tried to teach that with my kids and think I succeeded. Their friends are of all creeds and colors.

These links are wonderful! I especially liked the one on Michelle Obama.

Thanks for thought-provoking post.
