Oh, how the Great Shift changed things for Lamar in Harlem. Before the Shift, his apartment building and his entire neighborhood had been predominantly African American. There were also a few Hispanics and even one or two white people, but the demographics drastically changed after the body swapping incident. The faces he'd see in his apartment building or at the subway station were far more diverse now. He supposed he shouldn't be surprised. After all, he was now a very pale white woman! He hoped the event would result in a far less racist world, but he had his doubts. He felt like strangers treated him a lot nicer now than when he had been an African American male just a few short weeks ago. He hoped it was because of his new gender, but he couldn't help but wonder if the kinder treatment was also due to his new skin color.
