As hateful as some, a lot, of white ppl have historically been towards Negroes in America, we still shouldn't categorize race-relations between us and the dominant society as (all) "white-America" dislikes us...because it isn't and has never been ALL white ppl who were hostile to us

Take for instance, Louie Armstrong, who this post is abt, had it not been for a white family the world would've never gotten to know him as the greatest trumpeter ever - they bought him his first coronet and always encouraged him to continue to get better

That same white family also made sure he ate a home-cooked meal every night ...because they knew Armstrong came from a very broken home

And this was at a time when the country was nearly torn apart because of racism/slavery
