  •  I'm very fair actually (0+ / 0-)

    former blond, blue eyes.  But I wear a kippah always, I sometimes wear tzitzit, I have a beard.  I don't want to lose myself. I don't want to be mistaken for a hate filled redneck because the rest of my family are.

    I am a southerner.  I was born in the south, raised by southerners - but I was raised primarily in Europe and it impacted my world view dramatically.  My brother is 4 years younger than I am and completely a redneck boor and proud of it.  The times we lived abroad were not critical ones for him like they were for me.

    I didn't have a Jewish identity as a kid - family secret time! - but I remember seeing how they were treated (hence family secret time) - and I lived in the UK for a bit (boarding school) and absolutely the UK is just a horrific hotbed of antisemitism.

    I wasn't allowed to sit with anyone at lunch - I had an end of the long tables to myself, period.  NO one was allowed to sit with me in grade 4, so it was just automatic after that.  No one eats by That Kid.

    And we sail and we sail and we never see land, just the rum in the bottle and a pipe in my hand...
