I am a native South Carolinian. Charleston is my maternal ancestral home. My great grandmother was born during slavery. My great grandfather I have been told was a plantation overseer. Never have I been more proud and more ashamed of my dueling ancestral heritages than right now.
Nobody loves like children. They don't come to earth with the ability to hate; they learn that. They aren't born with prejudice and fear; they learn that. They often continue to love through rejection, humiliation and abuse.
