I once went to a pool party with some African American friends of mine.  When we arrived it suddenly dawned on me that 99% of all the people at the pool were white like me, and my friends were the only black people there.  It was an odd realization.  I suddenly became very sensitive to the looks other people gave them, and I began to see a glimpse of what it must be like to be in there shoes.  My friends handled the whole situation very well and acted perfectly comfortable in their surroundings which I found very admirable.  

When was the last time you were in a situation where you realized you were different?  How did you feel?
