By the way...I am a white privileged middle aged male. But I was raised to appreciate that I was lucky compared to many others.

Dear members of these wonderful groups
I am a white male with many diverse experiences and I'd love to be a part of the discussion. I was part of Mpls' initial busing program in 1975. Imagine my experiences as a 12 year-old thrown into a chaotic new world I didn't understand. I went to Mpls West and the joined the military. The only true multicultural environment that exists in America. I long for a world where people are judged by their character versus their skin color. Sound familiar?
