I think at the HBCU schools you would have alot of the race card being played but you are talking about reasonably intelligent people, not gangsters
I love that white boy!Standing up at the NAACP meeting as the only white dude, that is pretty cool. It is a tough situation, I have been in it many times (attending a lot of the Black Student Organization meetings on my capus). I give a lot of credit to the other people at the meeting as well for embracing him. The receiption I got at those functions was always really mixed, which is why I stopped going.
I went to a black meeting with one other white guy in LS (for the free pizza). It was really uncomfortable. I've been to the asian meetings several times and was very comfortable. I have many asian & black friends, but I really wasn't expecting to be directly asked questions about the differences between whites & blacks. They wanted to know phrases that were unique to white culture. Neither of us could think of any but I suppose that was because we were on the spot when we'd planned to just observe. I just couldn't believe that they'd ask us questions in front of ~30 blacks totally impromptu.Anyway they are very much aware of racisim and I simply don't pay attention to it.
