  • @#!$#
  • It's the new kid's first day. He is black, unlike the others and when he walks in the class Trevor calls him an inappropriate name.
  • They go to lunch and the new kid has nobody to sit with. He was all alone. Kids were not being very nice to him.
  • Ms.Dennis
  • Just because we don't have the same skin tone doesn't make him different!
  • Nobody even likes you cause your black. Go back to your country.
  • Then Frannie and her friends start seeing things differently. Frannie is a strong generous person who knows what the value and meaning of family.
  • Frannie talks to him and finds out is name is ''Jesus Boy''. She talks to him and he says that he knows sign language, and so does Frannie.
  • Jesus Boy is picked on alot by Trevor. Trevor bullies him because Jesus Boy is black. This is the 1970's, so racism was common.
  • Later on Samantha asks Frannie why she helped him out. ''I don't know I just did.'' Frannie responds. Samantha replies with, ''Well that was the right thing to do!''
