What I’m Reading: Silver Like Dust – 21 in a series – “This is what you deserved!”

August 15th, 2019

”As the caravan of buses drove through the city of Los Angeles that April day, people stopped to stare. Some pointed and a few yelled. “You don’t belong here!” hollered a middle-aged man. “Dirty Japs!” shouted a young girl. “This is what you deserved!” yelled a mother, holding her infant son to her chest.”

From  Silver Like Dust by Kimi Cunningham Grant

What I'm Reading: Those were hakujin beaches. Whites-only beaches.
