Episode #4: Travis Jahnke

"My parents both worked so we had a nanny that lived with us. So I kind of grew up with three parents... A lot of white people were never conscious of race, but I've been conscious of race. My friends all thought my mom was black basically, because she was just around so much, she was the one who would take me to school, pick me up. I think that definitely had a huge impact on how I see things... I'll never forget the time when I moved to the Bay Area. Probably a few months in we lived in a gated community and they wouldn't let my nanny in, even though she was driving the car that had the pass to get in, she couldn't get in. The guard was just like, 'Yeah, I don't think that you live here' to my nanny."
