So wish it didn’t matter still.

I’m a white 73 year old grandmother of seven who has always lived in the midwest. I am grateful that I grew up in a family that judged people by the “content of their character” I rejoiced when we elected Barak Obama two times as our president and am so pained when such awful things are said about him just based upon his race. As a child I did not understand how just “one drop of blood” would identify one as black and “inferior”. It seemed to me that if that “one drop” was so strong to overwhelm the so called superior blood, how could it make the person inferior. Just do not get it!
