84. I've been one of these baby steps
I married a slant eye when overseas in the 60s. My folks never did anything but embrace her - she, I'm sorry to say - didn't return the gesture. But that wasa her problem - not one of society. What DID catch my ignorant ass by surprize was when we bought a home in a staunchly white neighborhood just outside Atlanta. Heh! I only learned a few year later that our moving in was THE talk of the neighborhood. How DARE that fella move here with that darkie??? She and I parted ways in '81, but I've found out she's buddy-buddy with the residents of her street.
