Thank you so much for taking the time to share your story and pardon my late reply. I have to applaud you for being able and willing to explore cultures and people what you were taught bad for you. Black people are some of the nicest people because we know what it feels like to be disliked and to be hated. Your story is so typical, and sad. I hope fearful White people can read your words and recall the lies they were told about Black people or other minorities. They are missing out on being around good people. The real bad people are the ones telling stories of how bad other groups are, and most likely to be their parents and grandparents. Thanks for sharing and reading.
