Mechanic disowned daughter for mixed grandson.

Submitted via: NPR’s Talk of the Nation

My neighborhood auto mechanic is part of the fabric of our town, but I found out that he’d disowned his daughter when he found out she’d partnered with a black African man. He does not know his grandkids. This makes me very sad. I have no idea what to say to the mechanic, and have not said anything. He’s an older guy with two sons who work with him.

    It is a shame that he wont know the joy of knowing his grandchildren. Life is too short to put up these walls based on the construct of race. Six more words: Mechanic needs more tools for understanding.
