Snagged from Facebook, five minutes ago:
I’m currently struggling through Uncle Tom’s Cabin, a book I realized I had never read. The hardest part, for me, is the depiction of white attitudes toward blacks in mid-1800s America, and the language used to convey those attitudes. And then I remember growing up with whites who still held those beliefs in the 1950s. And then Facebook reminds me that those same people passed their beliefs on to their children and grandchildren.
