    In the late 70s I went to Bedford-Stuyvesant to take a test to get into a science oriented high school. I clearly remember this primarily because I was the only white person in a sea of black people with occasional pockets of asians. It was a very odd sensation and I was relieved when my step-dad, who was planning to leave and come back after the test was complete, exited the car and stood next to me.

    The city block of kids and parents, perhaps 98% black, 1.5% asian was not in anyway unruly or threatening.

    In the end I tested 87% but it wasn't enough to gain entry.

      I actually don't remember any rocks actually hitting my car (a VW bug at that time)--but I seem to remember an empty can thrown in my direction, some people shouting at me.
