24. I don't doubt that one bit.

I was on a bus from Bloomington to Indianapolis many years ago that experienced engine trouble and had to stop in Martinsville. They told us it would be at least 30 minutes and recommended that we stretch our legs. I'd been talking to the black man in the next seat and asked if he wanted to go for a walk. I'll never forget his reply, "I don't want to be seen walking the streets of this town and you don't want to be seen walking with me."

I know now that white privilege had shielded me from many things but I still find Schnatter's statement to be kind of strange.

Your uncle may have been old enough to remember when there were lynchings in Indiana and was wise to use caution.
