"Dealing with them". You say that like you're dealing with bugs.

Her father is an ER doctor. He has resuciatated (don't think I spelled that right) people- bringing them back to life. He had an injured white man that refused to be treated by a black doctor, although easily qualified.

My school is in a high income area. Racism does exist today, even if it's not written on signs.
That's bull****. She shouldn't be taking that.

My school is really small, only 300 kids, so we are all very close and don't have much rasicm. The only black kid in the grade is very easy going and he calls himself 'the chocolate chip in a macadania-nut cookie' xD

Mine has about 900. Sadly, most of them are in the very lower grades.

I'm not racist, but I make 'racist' jokes around my really good black friends and they think it's funny. :P

Yes, you can make certain jokes without being necessarily racist. For example: "You can put tracker chips in a baby? That's such a white people thing."

*hopes that's not offensive*
