When I was in Highschool, there were so many different groups that would hang out together. There were the jocks, the Italians, the pot heads, and the blacks. It was really funny that I was the only white guy that would sit at the table with all the black guys and play Dominos. They were the coolest guys to hang out with, but lots of other people who went to my school were scared of them. People thought they were thugs because of the way they dressed and talked but it was quite the opposite. Many times I would to to parties with those guys and I would be the only person there who wasn't black but it was never a problem for me. I was comfortable hanging out with them and race was never an issue.
