Book Excerpt: 
"Yes, I can see the white people as 'my' people, but the Washington lawyer was wrong. I can hate them only if I hate myself. At one time I thought 'my people' were Koreans, another time Mexicans, and still another, Peruvians. I cannot escape the fact that I was born a Southern white. But nothing prevents me from feeling spiritually black-- or brown, or yellow or red, for that matter. 'My people' abide n my heart and mind - and that is the reality that all people must come to know and recognize. . . "
