She’s nice for a black woman!

Barry Watkins,
Santa Rosa, CA.

My mother took me back when she told me that. She was loving & guileless. She drove off the road when I told her I had Black roommates in SF, though I grew up in Beaumont, TX. I never thought of my roommates as “Black”, they were individuals – Ron & Rusty. That was when I was glad I had left Texas for San Francisco.
