What a testimony to the perseverance of my Greek grandparents and their fellow immigrants! I don’t know if my yia-yia and papou were victims of white supremacist discrimination when they lived in Canton, OH and Detroit, MI. But, I do know that my papou was president of the AHEPA chapter in Detroit, and that he had been threatened by a local union thug because he hired black men to work for him in his produce business. When the thug tried to overturn my papou’s truck, Papou beat the crap out of him. The thug’s name was Jimmy Hoffa.
