  1. Hello Robert!
    I enjoyed listening to your voicethread. I have a similar experience that you shared about your partner’s father getting pulled for extra security measures at the airport. I was traveling to New Orleans with my fiance, his sister, and her friend. My fiance, his sister and I went through security with no issue. However, our friend was not as fortunate. She had to go through extra security measures. She is a practicing Muslim and wears a hijab. Again, they claim that the security check is random but it seems to happen to minorities often. It is interesting to hear another experience similar to mine.
    Thanks for sharing!


  2. Hi Robert,
    I enjoyed watching your biography. I am also Irish and German. I have always wondered what it would be like to grow up in an area where there is more diversity. I grew up in a town that was prominently white. Your story about your partners father being stopped at the airport is something I have never experienced and I think it is just wrong. Again thank you for your post you did a great job on it.
