We were between North Carolina and New Jersey then and neither was really better than the other. I didn't know who they were because the media kept King in our faces and the N.O.I was just making headway in south Jersey. I became aware of them through Angela Davis and some of the brothers wearing their clothes with the insignia on them. In 1968 the police was escorting us to school because the school we had to go to was right on the boarder of the black and white neighborhood depending on which way one walked. I never thought white people could punch until a group of them caught me and my other two friends after school. I didn't sweat it too much because a few weeks later we caught a few of them and baseball batted they @ss near the trains.
