    Is it harder to be white or Asian at an all black school, or neither or depends? I wonder because I'm the only Asian at an all black school and it is very hard, and you (at least I) only hear about such race relations at American schools between whites and blacks (e.g. "being white at an all black school"), so was seeking other perspectives. Thanks:)

    I imagine its more difficult for some than others regardless of race. All things being equal; whatever makes you different in a setting with unenlightened people makes your life more difficult. George F. Will, for example, was quite at home when Republicans at least tried to be the smartest people in the room on a given subject. And when it comes to some matters, they are--military in most cases, the false utopia that many liberals seek to create, etc... However, when the GOP embraced the idiocy of xenophobia, fear, and false nationalism, Will found the atmosphere unwelcoming. He didn't get dumber; those around him did. So it happens to both the young and the old, the schooled and the dumb, etc...

    School can be pretty tough on any kid who's outside the norm. You can get bullied for anything.

    I would assume it would be hard to be the only person of any race at any school that is predominantly another race. Now that depends on how you comport yourself and what you do at school. I know a Black guy that went to a all white school and he was treated great but then again he was a basketball superstar. If he had been a Black guy that wasnt a basketball star would he have been treated well?

    Would it be any easier if you were an Asian in an all white school? How about being black in an all white school? How about being black at an all Asian school? These exist, so what's your point?
