Some of these friends went on to Harvard, MIT, Rice, Washington University, Columbia and Dartmouth. They were then—and still are—the group with which I most closely bonded. In June 1961, I watched carefully as the West Point cadet on the stage described the United States Military Academy on the Hudson River in far-off New York State. His distinctive gray uniform with white trousers fit him like a glove, and he looked sharp, confident, and in command, as his audience of a thousand Arkansas high school seniors at the American Legion Boys State convocation sat spellbound.
I’d made good friends there, and good grades. But the inspections, the isolation, the regimentation, the time away from home—it just wasn’t for me. But, somehow, West Point sounded different. More mature, purposeful. A combination of Harvard in the social sciences and MIT in the hard sciences. I could get a good education. Fully paid, which meant no more dependence on Mom.

It was simple prejudice against black people that they felt. There’s just no other term for it. I saw prejudice at an early age, and came to dislike it in all its forms. Maybe I was acutely sensitive to it since I’d come to Little Rock from Chicago. Over the years I’ve seen prejudice against blacks by whites, prejudice by Northerners against Southerners, and by Southerners against Yankees, by jocks against nerds, by the educated and wealthy against the undereducated and poor, by liberal intellectuals against the military, by Irish against Italians in New York City, by Serbs against Muslims in the Balkans, by conservatives against liberals on talk radio and various TV news programs, by straights against gays, and every manner of religious prejudice.
