By Linda S. Wallace Dear Cultural Coach:  Why do people put labels on their grandchildren?

Alawfultruth: Can we have, and keep, anything decent?

Is it wrong for White people to protect their heritage?

July 17, 2020

Q: Dear Cultural Coach: When immigrants keep their old customs and values, it changes our community. Their music is different, and there are shows in foreign languages on my TV.
