There is a world of difference between racism & prejudice. IE: one can look at a young man with a hoodie on and prejudge that the young man is a thug, that’s prejudice. To judge a man as a thug because of his skin color is racist.
I can understand prejudice to a person the way they walk/dress etc (walk like a thug, dress like a thug, chances are, you are a thug), however, to judge a person solely on their skin color is, at best, stupid. And at worst, poisonous.
Travel broadens the mind, if you visit different countries, you may find that most of the world’s population are similar in the way they treat strangers. In my experience, it has been with nothing but kindness.
In fact, the only real racism I have encountered, has been by fellow white skin people because I’m English and they have been French, and that does not mean I dislike every French person because of it. It just emphasizes my point.
There are good people and bad people, that’s life. Color/race/religion/sexual orientation/language don’t come into it.
