My sister, a white woman, struggled to escape her white, would-be, killers. She frantically knocked on several doors seeking help in a black neighborhood only to be turned away by all but one family. I, however, can't blame them for their reluctance to help. One doesn't have to try very hard to imagine what might happen when police find a bloodied white woman on the door step of a black man. I am very thankful for the brave man who took a chance and helped my sister. Probably saving her life.
