Response to Scuba (Original post)

8. The Klan tried to recruit us when I was in high school.

I was brought up to be a racist repiglican conservative christer. I escaped that shit when I began thinking for myself, which caused a huge rift in the family. Stopped going to church but it took years till I stopped worrying about being "left behind," though the racism was so ingrained I still have to fight it within myself from time to time. It became a default response in my childhood, and I doubt I'll ever escape it completely. Still, I can beat the shit out of it when it enters my thoughts.

Tough shit, mom & dad.
