John Tucker talks about feeling included by his Black classmates, and noticing the prejudices among his white peers. John discusses the use of the N-word. Michael talks about growing up with Black friends and trying to assimilate in a predominantly Black neighborhood. He credits his lack of prejudice to growing up in Riverside.
