My husband is. I really don't care, in every race there is bad and there is good. I try to stay away from people who I feel are bad apples. It does not matter if they are white, black, mexican, asian, everyone is the same to me.

I forgot about this issue; my father also always disliked the Japanese because of Pearl Harbor. It just didn't make that much of an impression on me because my mother was so open-minded that she countered anything that he would say.

My mother used to hate the Japanese, probably because my grandfather hated them. That hatred goes back to World War II. However, she & this Japanese lady that she worked with did become the best of friends.

My older brother is extremely racist. I don't know where it came from, because we were not brought up that way- my mother especially would never tolerate any racist or ethnic jokes or derogatory comments, and I learned to be open-minded at a young age. I can remember when my niece and nephew were younger a time when my brother would not let them watch the movie "Beverly Hills Cop", strictly because Eddie Murphy is black. I'm still dealing with his racist attitudes today; We're white, and I am dating a black man. He hasn't gone so far as to say that he isn't welcome in his home, but he makes it clear that he feels it's not right. I wish that he could see him as the person he is beneath his skin color, because he is an awesome guy. But I don't worry myself about it anymore. I can't waste my time trying to change what other people are.

Like all our ex-army man that fights the African wars my father were little, in spite of having some good "black" friends. He, like others watch some good friends get killed by Africans and then maybe that make some of them racists. Now I don´t think that he still think like that. There´s good and bad people in all rages.
