    ...to growing up white in a racist family. There was a little girl in elementary school who always had the cutest hairstyles. When I told her she was a cute little pickaninny, I had no idea why my compliment would trigger such anger.

    High school years were marked with cuss-laden threats of being disowned if I ever dated a black boy.

    Fast forward to my mid-30's when telling family that my boyfriend was black. My dad's immediate response? "Well, honey, that's your prerogative. I'm just glad you found somebody you can be happy with."

    I'm shocked to this day at his response.
    He's also come out in support of gay marriage and votes Democrat.
