Nowhere do ANY of the other BSC members reject Jessi because of her race or call her any racial names.
NONE of the other BSC members or anyone in their families call Jessi a "Mobobwee" or any racial slur!
Initially, in the EARLY books, the older BSC were reluctant to have Jessi or Mallory as full-fledged BSC members because Jessi and Mallory were very young and because they'd had one negative experience with other 'newcomers' being irresponsible and flighty.
It was their age, not anyone's race that was an issue with the BSC.
But once both Jessi and Mallory proved themselves trustworthy and responsible, the rest of the BSC welcomed them with open arms.
As to any racism Jessi encountered in Stoneybrook...that was with a FEW people OUTSIDE the BSC.
The book Keep Out, Claudia is actually illustrative of how RARE racism truly was in this large northeastern town...the BSC were very shocked at the Lowells' racist, backwards, right-wing attitudes and rightfully refuse to facilitate their racism...they do NOT complacently accept the Lowells' attitude as the 'norm' at all.
Don't forget also, Booboobrewer...Stoneybrook is also comprised of grandchildren and children of immigrants, which lots of fanfictions neglect to mention.
Not to mention that MOST of the BSC have dark brown eyes...only Stacey, Dawn and Mal have blue eyes.
