I lived in the snarf suburb, Rockford, MI.
2000: 8th grade. A sad time to leave Grand Rapids, which has diversity, for whitesnakes, aka 98% of Rockford.
Instantly, people hate on me for having pictures of black athletes (the Clippers at the time, Darius Miles, Lamar Odom, Elton Brand) on my agenda.
“Do you think you’re black?”, I’m asked.
