I was "raised racists" in some ways. not by my parents, but by the environment I grew up in. I had a few "ah-ha moments" though even as a teenager but I can also remember stupid racist values spewing out of my mouth and thinking I sounded justified.... if not even patriotic to say and think so.
Though when I was about 15ish I was walking alone and had to walk passed a group of aboriginal men and I couldn't run or cross the road without being obvious... and I was genuinely afraid of them. not because of any personal experience but because I'd been told to be afraid. and they smiled and said hello.... .kinda a "light bulb" moment. reality was so different to what I'd been drilled was how "they" were.
