Yes. In 10th grade, in Birmingham, Alabama, an African-American student told me, to my face, "I hate white people." The following summer, in Gulf Shores, Alabama, a white kid (from Louisiana) called me "nigger."

I was taking an interest in a black guy who is in many of my classes, and he was taking an interest in me. He asked me out on a date, and I was pretty excited about it. He's a great guy, we get along. My parents objected, however: "don't sell yourself short" I believe were the words. I don't understand this kind of thinking... it makes no difference to me what the color of the skin may be.
