Example text

Louis City one afternoon. Chatting in the kitchen for a while, my grandmother started to tell us that the “xxxx niggers” were out of control and some lived right next to them. She went on to say that she wanted them to leave. They did not deserve to live in such a nice neighborhood. Being fifteen, I had never heard someone use that word before. I was incredibly offended, gave my grandmother a horrible look and left the room to go watch television. My brother came into the room and asked me if what she said offended me.

I thought that was the most uncomfortable moment of my life. I was wrong. It continued. We would often drive around our neighborhood and the minute he saw an African American he would start cussing them out and speaking bad about them. He would stereotype them, saying that they were dirty, lazy, and dumb. He would generalize and say that they were all drug dealers and they probably did the drugs too. He would threaten us by saying that we better not end up with any of them, and that if we did we would only end up miserable.

I always wanted to speak out but I was taught that I must respect my elders. So, I would just make an excuse to be able to leave. I thought that was the most uncomfortable moment of my life. I was wrong. It continued. We would often drive around our neighborhood and the minute he saw an African American he would start cussing them out and speaking bad about them. He would stereotype them, saying that they were dirty, lazy, and dumb. He would generalize and say that they were all drug dealers and they probably did the drugs too.
