They told me I couldn’t be Asian

I volunteered to join a faith based prison ministry and was told by the local sheriff’s department that I was not allowed to join as an Asian. Said the deputy “we only do white or black. Do you want to be black today?” After more than a year, including receiving a phone call from someone saying they knew what I was doing and I should not try to participate in the prison ministry, I had an opportunity to speak directly with the sheriff. He told me he had no control over what his department does.

    Sorry to hear about your experience. We Asians are the minority amongst minorities unfortunately.
