One of his positive experiences is that his mother realized the differences between the quality of education offered to the blacks and the whites. Due this she stressed the value of education and sent him to the white schools. On the negative side he was always concerned about her safety since they lived in a black neighborhood in a tome when race relations were strained. This is shown directly in the incident involving the Black Panther when James is boarding the bus.
