Another time racism benefitted me is the first few years after 9/11 when people didn’t want to sit next to me on buses & so I got more legroom on my way back home from college.

Great piece. My mom, who arrived in Chicago in1970, said she also went to the lone Mexican grocery store to buy garlic and mangoes –– things she said Americans didn't eat much of back then.

If I'm not mistaken, said journalist might have gotten her first full-time reporting gig HERE in the Chicago-area at the Daily Herald after freelancing in India. I vaguely remember because a family friend met her & suggested I reach out to her.
