Every day.

Every day,  I get on a very crowded bus two blocks down from my house.  I'm almost always the only white person on  the bus. The people stare at me,  wondering what this white girl is doing out here in the hood.  I smile,  say hi,  and try to look like I know what I'm doing.
I watch the kids going to school in their cute school uniforms and they remind me of my Cornerstone kids.  I transfer buses.  I watch as the black people get off the bus and are gradually replaced by white people.  This city is still so segregated: the black people live in their black neighborhoods, the Hispanic people live in their neighborhood, and the white people live in their own neighborhood.
