  • I really appreciated Mr. Hoffman’s sharing of his family story. He expressed so well his experiences, albeit difficulties, as an adopted bi-ethnic child in a loving family with white parents and siblings. It appears that his childhood experiences at home, school, and in the different neighborhoods have given him a special insight into the racial divide imperiling our country and its people.
