    but if so my thought is that you were thinking many or most White people (especially over 40 or so) are also as nonracist as you are, and that is not the case. Sometimes when people are exceptional they think others are the same as them but they aren't.

    •  I don't think I am exceptional. (0+ / 0-)

      I do think that of the people who I count as friends they think similarly to me.  I could be wrong but then again I try to assume the best of others until proven wrong.  

       I think being aware of what your potential assumptions about others might be based on whatever factors in your life have created them is the exact opposite of racism/prejudice.  You are taking an active role to bypass unacceptable assumptions - which pretty much covers all assumptions that are based on unrelated factors - religion, skin tone, etc.
