Are you old enough to remember segregation?

I do. I remember the first day that they integrated our school. It was chaotic and shameful.


Do you remember?

Sort of, not really. I'm 54 and I don't remember our schools being segregated, but that's because we lived in a very white town. I don't remember any kids of color ever going to our school. Again....not because of segregation!

I remember seeing billboards that said **gger go home in my grandma's little town when I was a teenager. I'm 42 now.

You're only 4 years younger than my mom. The next time I talk to her, I'm going to ask her about it. She's from Texas or Oklahoma....one of the two. She should have a story or two to tell though it may not be very many.

My mom does. She was in an all black school in New Jersey starting in 1964.

Yeah...I really have no stories. I grew up in a Mayberry kind of town...very quaint and pleasant.

I am 40 and grew up in a town with a sign that said "**gger don't let the sun set on your ass here". That town is still horrible.
