I interviewed dozens of individuals and community leaders for their input.They confirmed racial consciousness and racism play their respective roles in the grander scheme of things.In this working-class community, Giocondo joined others from Italy in Milwaukee's grocery business, opening "Groppi's" store in Bay View, where James and his siblings worked.Typical of boys in heavily Catholic south side Milwaukee, James attended a parochial grade school (Immaculate Conception), but went on to the public high school in Bay View, where he was captain of the basketball team in his senior year.For whatever reason, we humans formulate our ideal partners based on varied factors that probably develop when we are still far too young to comprehend them. He once confided he wished his white partner would use the “N” word during their moments of passion.Still, some consider interracial dating a result of white exploitation. I followed a social media conversation between some black friends who were going on about the white-imposed Mandingo mythology about African Americans. Racially motivated or otherwise, fantasy is fantasy.

His beat spans the spectrum from athletics to the arts and from heath, politics and history to religion.Groppi became interested in – and active in – the cause of civil rights for Africans Americans, participating in the 1963 March on Washington and the Selma to Montgomery marches in 1965 on behalf of the Voting Rights Act.He also participated in the Southern Christian Leadership Conference voter registration project in the South, led by Martin Luther King, Jr., during the summer of 1965.Later in 1965, Groppi returned to Milwaukee, becoming the advisor to the Milwaukee chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Youth Council, organizing protests against the segregation of Milwaukee public schools.

He also became second vice president of Milwaukee United School Integration Committee (1965–1966) and advisor to the Milwaukee NAACP Youth Council (1965–1968).

But, when it came to dating, people’s motives were not so political or complex.
