I went to my brother's basketball game in Concord. The team in Concord was almost all white, there was one black guy. My brother's team won and the other team was pretty mad because they lost by only a few points. When we were leaving these guys [white] started making a lot of racial jokes. There was a group of them in one car - they were shouting stuff at us. It was me, my mother, my mother's friend and her three sons. I got kind of mad, but I didn't want to get into a fight just because they were acting stupid. I really don't even like going to Concord. Even though there are people still like that, I believe that if you try hard enough, you can still achieve what you want.
