The whispers and looks don't bother John W. Smith Jr. anymore.
It;s something the 78-year-old New Castle native says he;s been dealing with all his life.
When white business owners made him enter through the back doors, he didn;t protest. When some made racial remarks, he turned the other cheek.
Even when a banker denied the man a mortgage in a white neighborhood because he was black, Smith — who now works as a car salesman and serves on the Henry County School Board — didn't make a scene.
