  1. To Whom it may concern;

    My name is Tyler Meador. I am a graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi. I received a BA degree in History and worked with several organizations on the Southern Miss campus such as the Native American and the Hispanic organization. I am trying to find information about writing about my experiences about growing up in Middle Class white America and what I have learned working with the Hispanic Community. I was a reciepient of some racist remarks at Southern. I had a bottle thrown at my head and I was spit all because “I went against my own race”. I would like to talk about those experiences and I do not know where to begin. Can you help me?

    Thank You,
