Let me be the first to admit I don’t enjoy reading and especially writing about stories of human prejudice and racism but it’s a subject that has overwhelmed and staggered this nation for the past three weeks.

Admittedly, I’m no expert on the subject having grown up a British white kid in a small English town and then moving to the American suburbs and attending mostly all-white suburban schools. But that has not prevented me from seeing pure racism play out in a way I might never have expected.
