I am amazed at my easy entry to red neck bars, debutante balls and state prisons. Yet, that was the way I had effortlesly lived my life, as a white southerner in good standing with the Delta elite; a member of the Bachelors Club of the Delta Debutantes; an initiate of Kappa Alpha Order at Ole Miss, a fraternity founded by Robert E. Lee. Even as I had gone into opposition to the prevailing system, I was privileged inside of it. Looking back, it is astounding.
