Marah, I agree with you 100%. I grew up in a white neighborhood and did not have many black kids in my classes, and looking back on certain situations there were instances of racism that I didn't even realize were there at the time. Like if my best friend and I "did" something (she's white), I would always be the one getting addressed and yelled at. Or like when I was the only black lifeguard at the pool (hell, we only had three black families at my pool) the mothers would act like I was supposed to order their food from the clubhouse for them or clean up after them. Or if something turned up missing, someone always asked me about it - b*sh, I don't want your kid's raggedy a$$ toys, my parents can buy me my own damn toys.
