  • AB shared from Dear White America: Letter to a New Minority (City Lights Open Media) by Tim Wise

The possibility of failure was unacceptable: I seriously doubt, whether there is one white father or mother in New-Jersey, who would be willing, that a son or daughter should contract marriage with the best educated negro, male or female, that now exists.
