Race seperated six generations of Robertsons.

Nancy Carr Robertson
Grafton, NH

I am primarily white, and my views on race (equality) and my serious relationship with a black man were enough for my family to shun me for several years. Our relations have never recovered. I am still, at the age of 61, an oddball outsider to my family — even to my own generation. I keep my distance. I am working on a novel about a black and white family over generations. So I am surprised that stating my own situation nearly makes me cry.

    It’s ashame that some people cannot accept interacial relationships.

    You should be ashamed of yourself for having a relationship with a negro.
