Learning from each other

January 22, 2014 - 10:57am
I grew up in metro Detroit so I knew that racial tensions existed in the world. But I never really thought about it much. I went to a mostly white high school, but I had close friends who were Chinese, Filipino and Vietnamese. My college roommate at MSU was African American. But I never really thought of them as anything other than just people. I learned about their cultures, ate food I hadn't tried before and loved the experiences of learning new things. I naively thought that serious racial bigotry was a thing of the 1960s and the past. Then I got married and moved to out of state when my husband was in the Air Force. We were stationed in a pretty homogenous area without the urban diversity I was more accustomed to. I remember one of our first days there, standing in a restaurant waiting area waiting for a table, and hearing a man make incredibly loud, racist remarks about an African American family dining at the restaurant. My husband and I were so stunned we simply walked out. Later, I witnessed a neighbor shouting racial slurs about Native Americans when she thought someone stole laundry off her line. An African American airman and friend who worked with my husband told of having rocks and racial slurs thrown at him as he rode his bike in town. Another day, a customer I was waiting on told me a "joke" using racist language to describe Arab Americans.
