Do you think no matter what ethnicity you are there are hints of racism in you? Do you think that if you are the only black woman in a neighborhood of all white women you feel a little uncomfortable? Or do you think that "white flight" where when the number is rising of another ethnicity that caucasian people tend to move from that area is an example of that? How about if you go to the store and notice that you are say, the only hispanic person there does that make you feel out of place? Do you think that it is a natural reaction or a learned behavior? Does your gut reaction to things make you racist?Answer Question

It's definitely a taught behavior. Look at children for instance, they see no color, just another child. They don't care if they are White, Hispanic, Black, Asian or whatever. They generally don't feel out of place if they are th only child of their own race. I do believe that racism has to be taught. I also believe however, that sometimes, pride of one's own race is perceived as racism when it's really not. There's nothing wrong with being proud of who you are and what race you are. It doesn't mean you "hate" other races, just that you are proud of yours.
