I am horrified hearing of your father's emotional abuse of you. Yes, there are racists "out there" who might appear at any time, but home is supposed to be your one safe place to retreat, to let down your guard, and to get a break from the racism. I am so sorry to hear of your experience. Thank you for sharing your story.
