I enjoyed reading this heart rending account that seems very believable taking into account the prejudice of the day. Good writing all around.
Your excellent story presents well a terrible chapter in our nation's history.

A well-written and very sad tale. Stories like this still need to be told so we learn from the evils of the past. Congrats on your EC.

Congratulations on your 7th place finish, Phillip.

Such a heart-wrenching account of the hatred and bigotry of a people based solely on their skin color. To think these laws lasted until the 1980s is eye opening. The sad part is that I'm sure some of this prejudice still lives on in the hearts of some.

It is also true that I must watch not to judge others.
