We are all racist to some degree. Race, religion, country of origin. We cannot help who we are. We are all a circumstance of our up bringing. Just the same as a disadvantaged child tuns to crime, or an abused chld becomes an abuser, a child tramatized or exposed to racism will be affectes either positively or negatively. My best friend was severly beaten by 3 or 4 of the opposite race after a football game. He was also jewish. I am not jewish, but do you suppose he was beaten because of his skin color, or his religion. They tried to beat me as well, but I was basketball player AND I was absolutely crazy. I was able to dodge and hurt those who came after me. Also, my friend had a big mouth and that probably contributed to his beating. Now who was the racist? Those who beat or got beat??
