Valita In the first chapter "How is it possible to exist in a place that sucks so bad":

"At many schools, the jocks would be a good bet to ascend to the throne, but at Benson, they're pretty much all black, and many of the white kids are afraid of them."

Why is this sentence included? What is the reaction to a black teenage reader who will read this? Obviously, this book is written for white teens only? Let's move this book into the 21st century and edit out this reference to black athletes and the idea of fear for them by the "white kids."
