I Pass as White
This book was written in the 1950s by our dad. The manuscript was found after he passed away. This is his story of what hate, ignorance, poverty, and racism can do to a nation. What if you could change the direction of your life? Would you have the strength to make sacrifices to get there? Bill Pointer had that strength. In these pages, you will see the price he paid for security and happiness. His life started out just like most people. There was mom, dad, friends, school, several jobs, and the ambition to get ahead. But that is where the similarity ends. Bill's journey through life was full of pain and misery and fear. Every day was an uncertainty to Bill. This story is about the past and the future of a race, as well as that of a person.
