Surrounded by black, but still white.

I grew up in NYC as one of the very few white kids in the neighborhood, and for the most part the only one in my terrace. Had a black stepfather. It shaped me, and made me who I am. Anyone who really knows me knows it is not possible for me to be racist. But, as a 43 year old white man, I sure don’t look it. .

    Mixed race families used to be thought of as the problem.  I think they are the solution.
