Because black people can never be racist.
Only whites can be racist. At least that is what I have been told for all these past years.
Yet here we have some proof that that just isn’t so.
Now, I understand that black kids would be more comfortable rooming with another black kid. They’d feel more comfortable with someone of similar culture.
Yet if a WHITE kid said that he’d prefer a white roommate…well now, that is, of course, racist.
Funny how that works, innit?
