Fortunately I have been able to live through a blatantly racist era and see attitudes change. I remember this women telling me back in the 70’s about when lunch counters had been desegregated due to new Federal laws. The whites who Were opposed to sitting next to blacks now just accepted everybody sitting together like it was no big deal.
A lot has changed since Martin Luther King told us about his Dream. Most of his Dream has been realized. We are all better for it.
