FF, Are you black? If so, did you do well in school and end up being called an oreo?
No. My heritage is mostly white.
I had black friends in high school who had been called names at their inner-city schools before being bused out to our school in the suburbs.
In the mostly black city schools they had all tried hard, gotten good grades, and wanted to LEARN. This resulted in them being called 'white' or
'slave' etc etc. They were only considered 'black' if they gave the teachers a hard time or if they failed in their school work. Our school
opened up a program called 'project concern' and we had 50 students from the inner cities brought to our school. They were picked by the inner-city
The black kids who came to our school were all motivated learners who tried very hard, didn't get into any trouble, and were NICE. I was very happy
to see them at our school and was glad to support 'Project Concern' as much as I could.
