Reply to "What is your first race-based memory?"

I'm not sure if I posted here before or not, I only read the first few pages. I always knew I was Black, I remember being excited when someone Black was on TV. Otherwise I grew up in a neighborhood largely populated with Southern Blacks and Jamaicans, so whites and Hispanics were not an issue. I have a friend who grew up in the Spanish side of town and got called names in Spanish, he just thought it was amusing. 

In regards to racism I'm not sure I ever experienced it, I really only like Black folks for the most part and would likely not even notice non- blatant racism.
