A NEGRO STORY

A LITTLE JUNGLE BUNNY (NEGRO) WAS PLAYING WITH HIS
CHEMISTRY SET. SUDDENLY, IT EXPLODED AND MADE HIS
SKIN TURN WHITE. HE RAN IN THE HOUSE SCREECHING FOR
HIS MOMMY. SHE WAS COOKING AND DIDN'T LOOK AT HIM.
"GO 'WAY. GO BOTHER YO' DADDY FO' WHAT YOU WANTS."
HE RAN TO HIS DADDY. HE WAS WATCHING A BASEBALL GAME
AND DRINKING BEER. HE DIDN'T LOOK AT HIM. "I'SE
BUSY. GO BOTHER YO' MOMMY. GO 'WAY." THIS MADE
THE BOY MAD. "I'SE ONLY BEEN WHITE FO' FIVE MINUTES
AND ALREADY I HATES NIGGERS."
