Last week I asked if you’d help me understand America. I was thrilled to hear from people, and hope to feature everyone who expressed interest. Today’s the first in the series.
Cullen is a 38-year old married father of three who lives in Memphis. He was born in rural Louisiana, and has lived everywhere from Arizona to Idaho to Mississippi (with a stint in Okinawa and a seven-month “vacation” in Afghanistan)—first as an Air Force brat, then as an Army soldier, and later, as a government civilian working for the Navy.
In his initial email he told me a little bit about his take on race relations in the South. I was impressed that he was willing to discuss this with me and had to know more! Luckily, Cullen was kind enough to elaborate. Hope you find his insights as interesting as I did!
