I am an Ivy-league graduate and a board-certified medical doctor. The subject of race comes up all the time but the conversation that should follow is usually very short. When I see the speed sign on the road announcing 55 mph (or whatever the legal limit is). I know that posting is meant for me. My white counterparts can proceed a bit faster.
I live life at 55 mph lest I get pulled over and then almost anything can happen.
