    I saw this on Facebook & was floored that there are people out there so ignorant. There was a Black History Month luncheon today at work and everyone was invited. I learned so much during that hour about the Black history of the U.S. and the workers personal experiences in life and not to mention the food was wonderful. One gal told me about coming to Seattle and seeing her first Filipino. In my case when I was about 9 a Black girl moved into our neighborhood & we became best friends. Some ignorant neighbor wrote the "N" word and "go back to where you belong" on their garage. I asked my mom what "N" meant & remember her saying they are just ignorant people who do not know better. Unfortunately the harassment continued and they were forced to move.
