One day, during his senior year, he is involved in a discussion about race which forces him to analyze his own prejudices and re-evaluate his relationship with his bi-racial girlfriend. Kara, and his friend, Don, the first and only white brother ever to be admitted to Capwell's chapter of Beta Phi Beta.
