    Growing up in New Jersey and teaching classes where I recognized kids not by their color or culture,
    but by their name, I was startled on a camping trip through Virginia to find the sweetest lady imaginable
    telling me why she didn’t allow “Negroes” to camp in her Camping Ground. Knowing I came from the North, she said, I can’t imagine how you abide their color, their smell, their lack of breeding,
    and concede to sit next to them on buses and use the same Rest Room. It was inconceivable to me
    that any seemingly educated person could feel that way. Later on we moved to Indiana, and witnessed
    a coach saying to other coaches. “I wonder if our niggers are going to beat your niggers.” In the
    same large family, the college age son was taking a bus to march shoulder to shoulder with
    African Americans for the freedom they were entitled to. That was progress, delayed as it was.
