I went to at BUHS in the late 80's and knew all the black students. There was no racism then. If its there now, its probally a backlash from all the sensitivity training and forcing people to like someone when they don't want too. Just let people be and don't push. As a former klansman now married to an asian woman it takes time and when you react to much that makes them feel even better and more willing to take it too the next level. Try having a handshake day where everybody has to smile and shake hands or hug day.

Most intelligent post I've ever read on the Brattleboro forum. Take note everyone, this man has lived and learned from living in the real world.

I had the misfortune of growing up in Brattleboro, VT during the late 80s and early 90s. I experienced bigotry on a regular basis because of my race. I wonder if Brattleboro, VT in 2014 is still the backward, racist, bigoted cesspool that I remember.

A white teen walks down the street and you can hear the homeowners locking their cars. When a black teen walks down the same street the homeowners lock their cars but this time the black kid thinks it is racism. As Morgan Freeman recently said, racism will go away when people stop talking about it. Of course me pointing out a quote from Morgan Freeman is racism to the race baiters.
