My earliest memory of racism occured when I was only about four years old. I was sitting on a slide at a park in the Midwestern town where my parents were graduate students. My mother and father must have been across a field at the picnic tables, when a group of young men — probably in their teens or twenties — came by and made “ching chong” noises at me.
