They Make Fun of White People Who Are Athletic

2001, Florida, Caucasian

I realized over the past couple months that there are black students in my school that think because I am white, I am not strong. They act like because they are black they are much stronger and better than everyone else -- especially the white kids. They make fun of white people who are athletic. Before this I had never experienced racism. There have always been black people in my classes and in my church, but I never had any of them act toward me like this. I didn't even know racism was a thing until this year.
