I remembered once running into Mr Gunnar Myrdal during my stint as an orderly at a hospital. This was in the early 70s. I recalled Mr Myrdal asking me if I encountered racism in Sweden. I considered the question interesting. I said that I hadn’t come across any racism in Sweden. He didn’t believe me, judging by his irritation. Evidently, Mr Myrdal didn’t believe me. And how could I blame him? I wasn’t honest. This encounter was during my filtration with Black Power politics.
