I Need to Know your Experience

My father was a verbal racist, yet numbered African-Americans among his friends. Can I explain? Not really. But I knew something was wrong with the language he was using. It may be that is what propelled me to develop a community that included numerous African-American friends. Then I went to work with Latino farm workers in Los Angeles. These are things that shaped me.
