Yet, this is somehow not as significant. Or not taken seriously. And I'm expected to suck it up and take it.
They were racist. They beat you up and bullied you for being in the minority in your area. They mistreated you because of the color of your skin. They were mad at you because you are different from them. Either way they were wrong & it is important & relevant.
Do you trust Black people after experiencing something like that?

They were not racist. They were prejudice. Two different things.
We don't know their motive but what they committed was a hate crime in my eyes which means they are racist & prejudiced and you can be both in this case.

My point is that if one bad experience can change the way one views another race what can centuries of experiences do?
