I was older and living in a small city with integration due to lack of multiple schools at the time. We only had two Jr High schools and one high school for the entire city so we either went or we didn't. But we were only 40 miles from Boston so it was a thing for us even though we wouldn't be getting bused. The only kids that were bused around in our world were the kids coming in from rural areas, even from Mass while we were in NH. Of course, I was considered a (n-word) so I was always treated as less than wherever we lived. I felt that there was no place for me anywhere.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
