In grade-school, my best buddy was a black boy named James. I really didn't think anything of it at all until some of the other kids started telling me I shouldn't play with him because he was black. (It was the 80s, but I lived in a very small southern town where racism was still alive and well.) <br />
I went home and told my mother what the kids said, and she told me to ignore the kids and keep playing with James, because "God made everyone and He wants us to love one another". <br />
I never paid attention to what the kids said after that.
