Portland is a diverse place, being mixed race is a different experience now. Growing up half Japanese and half white in Midwest in the 50's and 60's was rough. If you were not all white you weren't right and I experienced a lot of hostility, discrimination and fights because of how I looked. Inside I felt like my white friends but I never quite fit in because of how I looked.The young people on the program say it doesn't matter your ethnicity but when you go to a job interview or try to get a promotion at work it plays a subtle role.
