I live in a small older neighborhood that is slowly being consumed by our city.

When Obama won the presidency, I remember some of my White friends reporting their black friends were sending them text messages to report to the nearest plantation at 6:00am. I recall an incident where something similar was shouted out at me from a thugged-out car driving by while I was pub hopping in Brooklyn the following weekend, “report to slave duty White boy.” Even if these incidents were meant as jokes, racism cuts both ways. And factually speaking, when looking at inter-racial violent crime statistics, black on white inter-race crime is 25x more likely to occur than the reverse. See FBI statistics for the breakdown.
