Well that explains a lot! When we moved to Canada in 1965, we had to change aircraft in the US. I'll never forget how we were treated. My father is dark and my mother white. It makes me happy when I see mixed-race teen couples!

It's nice to realize that I don't even think about the fact that I have three friends plus a father in mixed marriages.
