Feeling threatened - dream

Look for little coincidences in dreams. In real life the dreamer had just met her best friends new black boyfriend. The fact that the man in this dream is black could suggest that the dream is about her feelings towards this man. So test this theory out by looking for other clues to this issue.

THE DREAM I was in a school bus, sitting next to a nice man, who I was beginning to feel a level of comfort, trust and attraction towards. We were in casual conversation. All of a sudden, a black man got up, and held a gun out telling everyone to be quiet. I am not prejudiced at all, I hate racism. So, I was really perplexed (and of course scared) when I woke up from the dream. Well, in the dream we were all held hostage, and somehow, even though I was sitting in the second seat from the front with the nice man I was talking to previously, I found myself hiding in the front seat. I was laying on the seat and shaking. I was telling myself, as the gunman was talking telling everyone to be really still and quiet, that he knows I'm in the front seat, and pretty soon he's going to come get me. All of a sudden, he pointed the gun right at me, I saw the bullets in the barrel. I knew he was going to shoot. I also somehow knew the man that I was talking to previously would help out. I managed somehow to get from under the gun, while the nice man was tugging at the gunman. I started to bite the arm of the gunman, I knew I was biting hard enough to tear flesh, in order for him to drop his gun. I didn't want to actually tear into him, but I didn't know what else to do. After that, I woke up.

He friend had always joked about how they would grow old together never getting married and helping each other out.
