        in skin color. I grew up in a small town in Germany and the only black people I saw as a child were GI's rumbling through town in their tanks and truck convoys or missionaries from other countries  preaching at our church.

        I remember one missionary  from Africa telling us at Sunday School that there was no such thing as black or white: "See," he pointed to his dark arm in broken German, "brown like chocolate; you," pointing to us, "pink like piglets."

        All the kids laughed at the comparison and oinked and squealed in response, and I've never forgotten this lesson in judging skin color.
