Where will we wash colored clothes?

When I was 9 years old, our mixed-race family (Asian/Pacific Islander and German/French) was on vacation in the southeast. With six of us there was a lot of laundry. We stopped at a laundry mat and I hopped out of our camper to help Mom with the wash. A sign on the door read: “FOR WHITES ONLY!” That was the FIRST time I realized I was diverse!!!
