1. I have not become less white

After 30 years with my wife, but I have become very aware of all kinds of racism floating around us.
Not just the blatant in your face capital R racism, like when a redneck asked if my wife was a prostitute "back in China". But also the unthinking bland assumptions and ignorant attempts to be "open minded"
Having a non-white family sharpens your focus and gives you a different perspective on race and white privilege.
