I have to agree with the comment that says we are all racist, because having been saturated with tv shows and news reports all my life in which the black person was almost always the bad guy, or maybe he was a pimp with a heart of gold, how can you not be brainwashed into being racist? My mom worked hard to make us understand that it’s how you treat others that matters, not what you look like on the outside, so I do have an advantage there, but the underlying white experience is that the black person is the one to look out for. My country is a disgrace, don’t you think? The American Dream was a lie, and us being the light of the world was an even bigger one. It is very disheartening to have to acknowledge that to myself.
