My secret is out.
From a kid I grew up with. Not even sure which Kevin this is. That’s the kind of neighborhood it was: Lots of Kevins.
Colin and I grew up blocks apart in the 1960s, and it’s no coincidence he’s written this book.
All of us from that time and space back in the old neighborhood saw and experienced street intimidation, humiliations, robberies, bricks through our windows, and beatings.
What we experienced was “The Great Migration” and the subsequent ethnic cleansing as the city became unsafe. What we experienced was a slow motion race riot. When us old Wilmingtonians gather we talk of these episodes and the truth of diversity as we lived it always shocks the young and those from out-of-state.

Liberal whites sometimes say we should have stayed and “fought.” I always wonder what that means? Blacks, upon learning one is a suburbanite or rural dweller, narrow their eyes as they assess you as a stone-cold racist.
