A curious thing happened, then. I noticed Chris Paul CP3 signature shirt looking, even staring. It might sound naive, but it didn’t strike me that it had to do with race at the time. And it happened quite often that, if we were walking through a crowded place, even if we were holding hands, people would cut between us. It happened a lot. And then I noticed that when we went into department stores, she would end up being followed by security guards. And occasionally strangers would comment to us. Not bad things—usually along the lines of it being nice to see people of different races dating—but it became clear that people were generally not colorblind. People very much saw race, whether they admitted it or not.
