Sounds weird, doesn’t it? It did to me when my wife suggested it. To be truthful, the term was mine but the idea was hers. We were getting the house appraised and she wanted to be out of the house when the appraiser came and told me to take down all the photos and paintings and art work we had that showed that Black people lived here.

I don’t know what effect that had on the value of the house but we just heard today that Black people living in a house lowered its value by $22,000. My wife looked at me as if to say, “Right again.”
