I went to a middle school that was pretty much 1/2 & 1/2 black and white kids. Society was such that riots between blacks and whites were commonplace. It's sad but there were even riots at my middle school! Police men were on campus to try and keep the peace. It was so bad, white girls had to be escorted to the bathroom to avoid being jumped and getting beat up. I was lucky because I had lots of black friends. I didn't and don't see any difference in skin colors. Anyway, I had a friend - Terry Blair (who was black) and she had my back. If any of her friends that didn't know me, started causing me trouble, she'd show up just at the right time to tell them I was cool and not to bother me. She even invited me to her birthday party. I was the only white girl there among about 15 black girls. And I didn't think a thing about it.
