19. My uncle who was the first African American police commander in Chicago

Used to own a farm in Michigan. When I visited we would drive from Chicago to Michigan, he would fill up his car right outside the Illinois border and would not stop in Indiana because it had a bad reputation for attacking Black people. my uncle used to say Indiana was the lynching state. This was in the 60ís. I grew up in San Francisco and as a kid couldnít understand racism like that. It wasnít until I was older I understood what lynching was. Once I had to go to the bathroom and had to wait on that drive until we got to a safe place in Michigan.
