Y'know that just wasn't right. I guess how you are raised has alot to do with how you treat others, and I thank God in our home my parents taught us to have tolerance and acceptance.

One of my university history professors told the class an interesting personal anecdote. He was travelling with a Japanese companion throughout the south in the late 1950s. The Japanese was really puzzled as to which restrooms and fountains he should use.

I drank from a Whites Only fountain when I was three. To me water was water.

Utterly horrifying... there are times when I hate belonging to the human race because I have to claim relation to a bunch of small minded idiots!
