B.B. King: This is going to probably sound funny to you, but I didn’t think I was any different from anyone else, other than I was a black kid instead of being a white kid, and it was a segregated society.  We walked to school.  The white kids had a school bus. And I was crazy about Roy Rogers.  I liked William Elliott.  We called him Wild Bill, never did think of them as being white.  They were cowboys, my heroes. I think, trying to answer your question, I had never experienced the North.  I didn’t know anything about the North.  I didn’t know anything about any other society other than what we lived in. So, the answer to your question? Truthfully? All right with me.  It’s just that some people had and some had not, and I wished I could have been one of those that had, now that’s the truth.
