I grew up in a small town in Mississippi called Ripley. I remember at the age of 10 in the fifth grade the school segregated. That was the first time that black and white attended school together. I remember a teacher getting upset with a white male student for making a lower grade than his black counterpart.

I remember on Saturday’s my father would take one of his 12 children to town to shop. He would take us to the Café to get a hamburger. The things that puzzle me that we weren't able to go into the front door but had to go into the side door because we were black.

As a teenager I remember having 2 water fountains in the town square; 1 was white only.

At the age of 19, I attended college and was also trying to work. I remember applying for a job but was told that I qualified for the position, but he couldn't give me the position because I was black.

·      The questions I am asking today to does a black man deserve the same right as a white man in America today?

·      How Do you talk to your black teenage boys when their father is white?

·      Why am I fearful when a police officer pulls up behind me as a grown black man?

·      Will there ever be equality in America for black and brown?
