God, I hate rednecks. Well at least the ones that live by me. They all are as ignorant as a goat with no brain. I mean some of ‘em are nice and kind, but others are cruel as the devil himself. One time my sister and I were coming home from the local carnival and we saw a colored man lynched and set on fire. I’ve been scarred for life and my sister Annie Bee just fell to floor and howled like a rooster. You wanna know why she did that ? Oh well I’ll tell you why.

Annie Bee is engaged to a colored man named Bernard Walker. He is the most sweetest and intelligent human being that I have met so far in my life. He can get any female he wants, for his good looks boost his popularity. Most of the girls in town have a crush on Bernard Walker (even though it’s forbidden to admire a colored man) and yes they are redneck girls. What a shame. But my sister, known for her stubbornness did more than admire him, she fell in love with him. She used to tell me stories about when they would sneak out at dawn to see each other.

Lemme tell y'all something. I live in Texas, the land of racism and unfair equalities. I am a ‘white’ girl as you people call it, but I think of myself as done rare. I just started high school a week ago and I done made some friends. We share the same interests. For example Sarah and I both want to travel the world and become teachers. Christina and I both want to go to New York City. Jonathan (John John as I call him) and I both want twins when we grow older. Yup, twins!

My school is not that big but it isn't that small either. I hope Mayberry and Tuck are alright. Mayberry and Tuck are my younger siblings. They look a lot like my momma. Annie Bee and I look alot like Papa. Everyone in my family has got brown eyes except my sister Annie Bee and myself. Like momma likes to say we are ‘the blessed children’. Every Time she says that, I fall over the floor and laugh.

Annie Bee and I both have gray eyes, dark red hair, pale skin ( well she has more of tanned skin), small feet, big attitudes, and large derriere's. Which has to be the reason why Michael Crow keeps slapping mine as I walk passed him. Papa does not favor Michal Crown one bit. Papa has light brown shoulder length hair, a long pointed nose, warm brown eyes, a slim figure, and a high tolerance of patience. Momma however does not have a high tolerance of patience at all, she has long black hair (that she always keeps in a ponytail), a curvy figure, voluptuous breast, and piercing hazel eyes.

I love my family. Oh I almost forgot, about Mayberry and Tuck. They both are 12 years of age and have chocolate eyes. Thats all they have in common. Mayberry has freckles on her cheeks, short chestnut hair, Papa’s long pointed nose, and mama’s curvy figure coming in.

Tuck is a whole different story. Tuck has momma’s jet black hair, Papa’s slim figure, Momma’s short chubby nose, and Poppa’s strength. And even if they don't have the kind of relationship that Annie Bee and I have they fight all the time and call each other names. They are going through ‘that stage’.
