Respect my fears. I’ll respect yours

I had the experience to going daily from my cushy white suburb into the black ghetto area of Cleveland. I could feel the hate. Black eyes upon me. Real hate (their’s) Real fear (mine) People who see my nice, cushy, white suburb versus where they live. Yes, I saw it, too. Not everyone had the hate. Not the people at the College. Just the people in the ‘hood. Some Hope there, I think.
