For "people like us", these are the good old days. While I have some fond memories of growing up in rural Georgia in the 50's, having people hiss "ni**er" when I got on the bus is not one of them. Give me 2003 any day....

Fine. I undestand that. My mama raised me to call y'all "colored people". The N word was never spoken in our home.

We were taught that only the white trash called a colored person that. We got it.

But, surely there must be some memories beyond white folks calling you a name?

Even sad memories are good.
