Nathan Robert Augustine,
I am a white man who has experienced plenty of privilege but also seen a small bit of the racial inequities that plague our society. I attended grade school and junior high in Eugene Oregon where the only non-white kid I knew was a black boy who had been adopted by a white couple. Then I moved to Lafayette Louisiana where my high school was more than half black (many white kids attended private schools). The dramatic difference between these two places started to open my eyes. More than 30 years later I am still trying to open them fully.
