"There used to be a coat store, like a dress shop. And I remember going into that store and finding a jacket I loved, and I went a brought it to the register. And the woman said to me, 'What are you?'. And I said, 'I'm Black.'. And she said, 'No, you're not Black, because Black people are thieves.' So what are you?'. And I remember thinking, 'Wow, I love this coat, and now I have to put this coat back.'." - Soledad O'Brien
