I have been black for over 62 years. I grew up in rural East Texas in the heart of Trump Country. I do not remember hearing anyone say that white people should not be proud of being white. I was entering 5th grade when our school was closed and we had to go to a new school. As we entered the city there was a sign "RESTRICTED WHITES ONLY". was 9 years old but I knew what the sign meant. It was old and rusty. Knowing the history and the danger or black men and white women. Did I mention that my our mom was a teacher on a different campus but a few of the black teachers came to the new school. Our previous school was 1 - 12 on the same campus. I was a bit hesitant until the girl runs up to me blonde hair grabbed my hand and introduced herself to me grinning ear to ear. I am black but I have family members from all over the work. I am but have an amazing wife and mother of who is Mexican. I think our daughter was about 12 when she told me she is Blaxican. Stay Safe and now more than ever our Democracy fight against voter suppression.
