I got shivers, goose bumps and about five lumps in my throat from reading that.
Damn, that was a helluva post. Thank you for that. And no, I can't imagine what it must have been like in those days. Do you remember A Different World, the spinoff to The Cosby Show? They had an episode where the little bougie princess (Whitley) and her boyfriend/husband? Dwayne Wayne went to LA during the riots. It was an event that changed them both. Hard to believe that stuff like that can happen in AMERICA.
