Re: “The roots of Little Rock's segregated neighborhoods

I spent the first 25 years of my life being raised in Little Rock and only once do I recall a white stranger saying hello or good day to me (excluding folk at school of course). I have lived in NY ever since and I am no longer treated that way (marginalized). In fact - instead of being the black this or that I am just simply Latonya. This is why I am tormented; should I go back home so my chocolate baby can grow up with family and friends or stay up here without family so as a brown person he can have better opportunities and higher self-esteem; it really is a no-brainer I guess but a terrible sacrifice just the same. I am certain that if I stayed in Arkansas I wouldn't be a manager reporting to the VP of Operations for one of the richest companies in NYC.
