I find it so odd when people talk about racism, not one have I ever noticed someone because of their colour... Actually I take that back, my mom told me when i was 3, I seen a black couple for the first time and was speaking in shock "MOM MOM look at those BLUE people! Look mom they are BLUE! This happened in a crowded grocery store.
When I was three I always mixed up Black and blue.
She still says she was horrifyingly embarrassed even though it was 36 years ago.
I grew up in the South (US) in a town with very few hispanics at the time. Once, when I went to the New England area, I saw so many there for the first time in my life. They looked like Asian Indians, but I could tell they werent from there. I think I embarrassed my parents as well, but I dont recall what I said. I think I was 7-8 years old at the time.
One of my cousins visited me when I was about 19, and was surprised to see whites working in landscaping in my home town. He was so used to the Hispanics.
