I was no stranger to racism. Having grown up a black person in the ’60s and ’70s, I knew that prejudice was common. But I had never understood why. Sitting in that lounge with my new friend, I decided to figure it out in the only way that made sense: By getting to know those who felt hostility toward black people without ever having known any.
"I Wanted to Understand Why Racists Hated Me. So I Befriended Klansmen." is from the September 29, 2017 Outlook section of The Washington Post. It was written by Daryl Davis and narrated by Sam Scholl.

This man is an inspiring individual who had the right idea... Find your enemy, find common ground, and build from there... When you aren't talking-or just talking to like minded people, nothing positive is accomplished. I would give anything to meet this man and spend a day with him!
