I finally realized why I work with minorities. I feel guilty for dated an aryon nations member.I dated and was engaged to him because I thought I could change him. of course being young & stupid helps. I've never been one to hate people based on the color of thier skin. My best friend growing up was black and alot of my friends now aren't white. I felt bad so I started working with inner-city childern. woops, on one told me I was gonna fall in love with them. At first they didn't like me b/c I was a small,white,country girl. When I was at our boys camp( I worked at both camps) the boys loved me. It's not often that a white girl could fight them and win or that a white girl would pay attention to what they said. I had more respect at the boys camp by the black boys than I did in my own hometown by the white guys. So guilt started it, but I went back because I made a promise to them that I'd come back. They've had to many ppl lie to them , I'm not gonna be one more. love makes me come back. they are little kids with big problems. I don't care what color they are , they want help & I'm gonna give it to them.

actually thats not very true at all. if she felt bad about being so closely associated with someone who hated people of colour before, isn't doing something to change that, doing something to reverse that thought, doing something to prove that she is not who he is, a good thing? especially if it's HELPING PEOPLE. don't you think?

no, I ticked him off by breaking up with him.
I started by being guilty but now I love the kids and I won't work at anyother camp in MI. ( the pay sucks but it's for the kids!)
