I have heard that at AU the majority of white people are racist and the majority of black people are the stereotypical black people. I'm black, but I don't really fit into the stereotypical black crowd. I'm a little concerned about friendships, dating, rushing. I want to have friends and guys as friends and to date or mess around with but I don't know how that will work at Auburn. Help?

Honestly, I wouldn't go to that school if I were you specifically because of that or I would see into other schools to transfer to ahead of time. Not only is college a huge, expensive investment, but you want your college experience to be wonderful :) It's the last time you really geto somewhat be sheltered from the real world. You want to have fun and have a loving, positive atmosphere; not feel stressed like an outcast among a bunch of fools.Try it out if you'd like, but eventually you may have to remove yourself from the situation if you want true peace of mind and happiness as well as friends.
You don't want to get cozy with white people who may make racist jokes or comments towards you. You don't want to have to conform and shift your identity to please black people who are going to try and confine your individuality by pushing these stereotypes onto you. Maybe you'll find someone who's not like that though :)2
