Have you ever been racist or still are agents any race in any shape or form? Please be honest In the polls no one will no it is you. If you used to be racist agents any race and over came it explain it so maybe others can follow in your footsteps to stop the hate, also give reasons why you were racist. People please keep it pg13 and not to offensive everyone is titled to an opinion, but be mindful and respectful. This poll is just asking a honest question not a place to spread hate. I want to know what the world picks how common it is amongts CR.

I used to be prejudice towards mostly Europeans due to my upbringing. My family and the people in my neighborhood did not like people of European descent at all and being a child then and not knowing what bigotry was at the time, I thought that was normal behavior. I'm not that way anymore since I grew up and learned not to hate anyone due to their lineage. I just hope my family and whoever is prejudice will one day do the same.

I have never been intentionally racist against a specific person.
I may have certain prejudices for certain groups because that group has a behaviour/belief I don't understand, see no point in or find wrong. But I will not judge or throw it in the face of a person who follows that group. I'll ask, research and try to understand.
Where I'm from (my tiny little hometown) you're taught from infancy to judge others based on who they are and not what they are and to be tolerant towards others no matter their race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion or handicap. Of course it's not perfect; people talk and make nasty comments every once in a while...but if someone take offence an apology is usually always around the corner.

Great poll question!!!! Let's be honest, everyone has suffered some experience which may have prejudiced them to one group of people or another, it is only natural. I admit to having have a proclivity to judge certain groups of people because of their racial background, but when analyzing a person on an individual basis, I fervently adjust my preconceptions to look beyond what I see, I've been nicely surprised countless times and as often not. Ugly loud and rude behavior is endemic of our species.

Kind of I suppose, I'd say a lot of times without realising.

For example, I only found out recently that wearing a native american head-dress is considered racist. I've not actually done that before, since I think their clothes are ugly, but it's an example of being racist through ignorance.

But I don't think that skin-colour or the background of a person is a good reason to hate them.

I was unintentionally racist one or two times when I was little (I said something racist without knowing what it meant, like a little kid & cuss words/stuff you're not supposed to say), but I've not been since. In fact, I can't stand racists now.

Sometimes people can take jokes about races pretty badly. I mean I'm sure there's a limit, but it's different with everyone.

You can be incredibly racist and people could even laugh with you.

But I know I've gone too far with people.

Here's what I understand: you have racist people, and people who are just ignorant.

It's a big difference, and I can accept the racist people but I get more agitated by the ignorant.

I'm a triple threat, with three passports from three continents (Ireland, Hong Kong, Canada).

I've also lived in 7 countries, gone to 67. I speak 5 languages, and with such a international background, I think I can be a bit racist. At least in a playful way or as a defense mechanic.
