I graduate tomorrow night.
And words couldnt begin to describe how much I fucking love my class so I wont even try. Under 300 of us, “lil ratchet ass black school” is what the county likes to say. F school for how many years running up til 2011-2012 finally getting a C. My neighborhood is small and tight af. Our middleschool and elem school are two mins up the block so these are people Ive been with my ENTIRE LIFE. Thirteen years man. To actually know 99.9% of your class by name, just because we’re all like a gadayum FAMILY is something I never woulda gotten if I live seven blocks down a diff direction. The teachers were fucking family outside the classroom. None of us were EVER a head count, cause not one counselor or administrator didnt not treat us like a PERSON. Real afffff with us and idgad if Im playing a race card thats that shit I wouldnt get nowhere else. Its the culture. They talked to us like we’re people FIRST students second. Nothing was ever sugar coated here, shit has been real. From the staff to every damn person who walks across that stage. I lovem. And on my life Ill never forget my high school years, it made me who I am.
