My six words ( amazed how it fit!) were said when I was 3 years old (1959) and I had just seen my very first dark skinned person, a lovely women who laughed loud, long and hard when I said it. In my childs mind I realized that like many animals and birds, people came in different colors also. My parents had no prejudices, so fortunately race has NEVER been an issue for me.
