This middle or high school level book explores issues of desegregation in a southern town in Florida in the early 1970s through its impact in 2008.
Meanwhile, most of the characters’ names have been changed because the writer just plain forgot the high school peers' real names.

WHO started the RIOT?
Taking my first college class on school dynamics and social behavior, I viewed a film narrated by Bill Cosby. Sitting on a stool in a stark room lacking any character or color; this actor, comedian, and educator explained his situation. It seems there were a bunch of people from every walk of life gathered in his area- AT FIRST. Supposedly, for the sake of argument only, Cosby decided he hated some of the factions based on various things from race to religion to sexual preference to social graces and so on. If he took issue with their heritage, beliefs, culture, and other social behaviors; he asked the person or group to leave the vicinity.
The audience laughs while examining their own prejudices.
The goal of this novel is to provoke that same analysis.
