Victoria Pool was thrilled to get her first job in education. But that first faculty meeting, where teachers discussed what and how they would teach the book "To Kill A Mockingbird" took an abrupt turn when it came to light that Victoria had never read it. 

When asked condescendingly how this could be possible, she replied in-kind, "I'm sorry, I was probably getting high or skipping school. But don't worry, I understand racism."

Hilarious, well told, and heartfelt, be sure to listen to this Worth Repeating story.
