Don't believe everything you hear - especially given some of the racist

areas in the Tidewater area back then. There were certain areas in Tidewater black people were told not to be in after dark so it worked both ways. Poquoson only had one black student when I was in school and that was because his mom was the Principal, I believe most of the white kids in the alley that night were from Poquoson. My point is there were all kinds of thugs in the tidewater area both black and white. He made a bad mistake the night of the bowling alley brawl but that was more a symptom of his following and him being immature. Had he not been who he was, you wouldn't have heard anything about it. Fights took place like that in various forms in Tidewater during that time. You've seen more negative press about the Vick's then AI.
