I am a single parent of a 16 year old that I have raised from birth alone. When she was about 6 years old, I took her to the grocery store to do our weekly shopping. We were in a predominately white suburb of Southern California. As I was about to park, a woman backed out of a parking space (without observing through traffic) and came very close to causing an accident. I honked the horn so she would stop, and she proceeded to exhibit her middle finger to me.
