Racial issues

I did not appreciate the way the black people in the story were referred to as " negros . It also says that she was taught that black people could or would never be as smart as white people. Last but not least, it says, Jessie was disappointed when she saw that the black women were not dark skin with curly hair. The racial stereotypes are not acceptable or appropriate. They also were not appreciated - at all.
