  2. Great Whitey Coker story...in the mid 1960s..at height of civil rights battles..the NAACP held a national convention in Portland. They were having a reception for local media and feared no one would show up. Whitey and I had been to a news conference in the early afternoon and we both told the local contact we would be there. As we walked into the hotel lobby where we about the only white guys in the room , "Whitey" turned to me and said, "call me Earl." I have never laughed so hard in my life. the people hosting it must have wondered what was so damn funny. Jim Howe
