Sometimes I think we all lose sight of the fact that we come from different back grounds that help form our opinions about the world. which is why our opinions differ so widely.

me too. Sort of. I guess you can call the South Bronx inner city. During the 70's and 80's. Somewhere between poor and dirt poor. All minority neighborhood. 60/40 Latin/Black. Projects. Public school only.

my community as a kid was probably 70-80 percent black. I grew up thinking that racism was something from the past I grew thinking ppl were ppl.

typical kid from the 'burbs. Actually from THE VALLEY. The one portrayed in many movies and a Frank Zappa song. Learned most about "race issues" during forced integration, and later as a social worker.

Piece of land. I graduated from high school and my parents bought me a new car...... Also they gave me a payment book. I married young and I'm still married to my wife after thirty something years, also still in love with her.
