I am an African American, Truth Be Told. Riding in a car in a nice neighborhood on my way home, Truth Be Told. Stopped, harassed, frightened by the local police because I was in a "suspicous" car, Truth Be Told. Questioned why I was in the neighborhood in I lived. Only because my parents worked countless hours, days, weeks, and years to build their dream home, Truth Be Told. Coming from a background of successfull black parents. I am an African American, Truth Be Told!
