Response to Kind of Blue (Reply #8)

9. It is easier for me, than most.

 

I was a B Ball player, all my young life. A welfare brat, during desegregation. When I went to NYC for my senior year, to get best recognition, I went to Julia Richmond, which was an all girls school before desegregation.

I was the only white guy.

The minority.

Despite centuries of oppression, nobody took their angst out on me. I did not suffer 1/100th of the racial hatred that is visible - this very day.

I not only adore civil rights leaders

My adoration includes you guys & gals who stand tall, with them; which has always been - a noble battle.
