    I have always been conscious of the advantages of being of Northern European heritage. I've lived in the South and seen that bias against anyone who wasn't white (looking). Now I am in New Mexico. Not perfect; multicultural.

    Being white, often it is assumed that I will chuckle at racist jokes. I may lose friends and acquaintances, but I don't think it is funny. I don't feel guilt, for how do you feel guilty for how you are born?

    As I say: "It is not how you are born, but what you do with your life".
