When those two white teenagers left the diner, a couple black guys followed them out. I hope those teenagers didn’t get hurt, but I have a feeling they did.
Those kids clearly didn’t belong here and I don’t think they knew what they were letting themselves in for – but you don’t come into this neighborhood and start cutting up and making fun of people.
They said something about me after I took their order but I couldn’t quite make it out. I watched them eyeball the other people in the diner, whispering and laughing. The people they were laughing at noticed it too, including the two guys who followed the teenagers outside.
I don’t consider myself a racist, because my boyfriend is white, but those kids who were in the diner were making fun of our skin color. White boys better not do that in Over-the-Rhine.
