American As Apple Pie is the story of how I met people of different back grounds and how those encounters shaped my attitude towards them. It is about my life, showing how I was introduced to the majority white culture and how those encounters helped me become fully American. This story is told as seen through my eyes as a minority.
American As Apple Pie is a a story of becoming American. It is told as I lived it, beginning as a child in a minority neighborhood of different ethnic back grounds. I wrote this story of my life a I experienced it, coming from a culture different from the majority. This story is intended to take you with me to witness my life journey. I wrote it objectively, with straight talk and some humor, along with some emotions to help you understand that deep in the hearts of a minority we want to be accepted as part of mainstream America. This journey was a learning one, where values slowly evolved. During that trip, I chose to concentrate on the good side of those I met, not because of convenience, but because the bad side has no benefit and only perpetuates misunderstandings. I had a choice and that choice opened doors of opportunities for me to become a part of the American dream.
