I wasn’t cognizant enough at the time, when I was younger.  You don’t think things then like you should.  But there was a lot of animosity in the Black and White community.  It was mainly the fault of the white community, now that I look back on it, really.  It wasn’t even a question about it.  And they were different times.  And like I said, it was a generational thing.  The way your parents raised you and their thoughts carried into one generation to another.  And, like, Charlottesville, couldn’t imagine anything like that today.  But it was different.
