THE ROOT Calls Me Out!

1 second ago
I'm a white American grandmother and boy would I love to sit down with that lady and talk some sense into her! Can't she see that videos like hers only make us "racist" when we weren't even that way to begin with?? I was a kid in the 60s and grew up in a white neighborhood, and did not even know any blacks until I went to high school and the various junior high schools converged; it was then that we started to have "race riots" in the 70s, where many times I feared for my life, had to run and hide from black guys trying to feel me up because I had blonde hair, etc. I wasn't "racist" toward them at all! I was AFRAID! This was all new to me! I lived in fear for all three years of high school. It wasn't until I went to college that I began to see nice black people, students who wanted to be there, who behaved properly and didn't start riots or try to touch me inappropriately because of my hair color. But I mean it, women like her really put blacks in a bad light. It's just ridiculous.
