We used to live in Boulder Creek near Santa Cruz. I didn't like it because people would ride by in cars and call me a 'nigger'. I told my mom a few times, but it happened a lot. Sometimes, I would throw rocks at the car. At the school there, the kids were all afraid of me, because they thought I would beat them up. When I grow up, I want to have my own company in Jamaica. I'd like to live there someday, because that's where my grandparents are from.
