“Especially in Front of White People”

In 1st grade, I told my black teacher, in front of white teachers, a fellow black student called me a nigger. They all gave me astonished looks and later my black teacher was upset with me and I couldn’t understand what I had done. She told me that word was not something to repeat, especially not in front of white people. In 5th grade we went on a trip to D.C.. We were supposed to get a tour of the white house. We stood outside for hours waiting after several groups of predominantly white kids went inside. Our teachers took us away upset. They never said to us that they felt something racial had taken place but I personally could not help assume just that.
