Originally a personal Facebook post, I also wanted to share and memorialize this here, on Grace Pending:
A first hand story of humanity –
My Uber driver tonight, a heavily accented young man from Turkey, is working on a masters degree in economics here in the states. His family still resides in Ankara.
Because I needed to know, I couldn’t help but ask how he has been treated since he’s been here. Without hesitation he said that he’s never experienced any racism or bigotry from any American, ever.
