I always think it’s hilarious when people pretend as if the past was better than the present..

Well, I'm a white 47-year-old and I certainly have been, on a daily basis for the two years I lived in the city. In job-seeking, at work once I finally found a job, at my kids' school, at the grocery store, both subtly and overtly. Before that I just kind of assumed that racism mostly was white-on-whatever-color, but damn did those two years open my eyes.
