I visited the American Institute for Economic Research (AIER) in Great Barrington, MA a little over a week ago and met Jeffrey Tucker for my first time. He’s the editorial director there. We got talking about his early life in Lubbock, TX and he told me an interesting story about how his grandfather, to avoid discrimination against himself for a physical problem, started serving an underserved and probably discriminated-against community whose members didn’t care about this physical problem. So each sided acted to deal with people who were discriminated against (assuming his grandfather’s fear of discrimination was justified.)

Jeffrey gave me permission to blog about it, but I didn’t get to it.

Jeffrey did, and here’s the result.
