My life palate is the sum of relationships, experiences, and genetics. The marriage of relationship to experience has produced an anomalous life. Experience is the father and provides the DNA for this this life. The experiences just happen to be connected to race. There are a series of events that in hindsight served as catalyst to my sundry of styles, vernacular, friends, vehicle choices, and even political ideology. Hopefully you will find yourselves in at least one post, or even able to better empathize for challenges of this sort.
