Glad you are honest Boondox. The older you get, the easier it is to put the negative bull**** from childhood behind you. The important thing is that you're trying, which means you care.

i do try like i have several black friends its just the first time i meet them i automatically think they are bad people

Man that does..But seriously, as I said, since you don't want to be, you will someday be able to put this behind you. My father also made some comments like that to me, and the older I got, the more I formed my own personality and ideals way apart from his. I'm glad you're trying, you'll get there. Believe it. Parents can **ck us up so badly, and then we need to kinda heal ourselves.

Ignorance or stupidity. Possibly a mix of both.

Not that many people are racist, but some of the media, more like the majority always pulls out the racist card.

Some people for example, blacks are sterotypical to themsleves and influence racism. not all blacks are bad, in my opinion

Well whenever my girl serves black people at work they typically never tip unlike the whites. So I mean that right there is enough to justify a bad attitude when they come in

I'm a little racist but I'm working hard to not be. i hanged out with my fellow blood brothers from Iraq too much and started getting dragged into their attitude.

It's been around since the dawn of time. I'm a little racist myself but I have different beliefs not bad ones. I have black friends btw. the only time I'm ever racist is if someone is being racial to me. Me and my black friends make racist jokes at each other sometimes were not being mean we just joke around to be funny.

Because slavery made people *Whites* Think they owned or were above blacks, & it was just a mutual feeling throughout families even though slavery was done with, the thought process for some reason didn't change.

Because it's easier for people to show negative feelings towards others. It's too much work to love and care for one another, as we should, so we take the easy way out.
