I try with anyone regardless of race/ethnic background...I just try because they are human.

I'm having a tough time picking an answer. Becaue when I am dealing with a person of whatever race, I am not thinking "I better be extra nice to Christina, in order to improve race relations". I'm thinking "Gee, Christina is nice and I like her" or "Gosh, Christina is kind of a &%$@#!. I'm gonn try to avoid her"

I will always give people the benefit of the doubt in the beginning, after that, if we did not hit it off as friends, I will continue to be nice to them as long as they are nice to me. If they are rude, etc. I will most likely just avoid them all together.

i don't find that i have to try to get along with people based on their background and its similarity or difference to my own. folks is folks.

being of mixed heritage (part of it being historically minority in nature) i guess i always feel somewhat identified with other people of color or minorities (religious, ethnic, whatever), in regard to certain experiences.

all that being said, i make it a point to be educated about and understand (and enjoy learning about) the cultural background and experiences of others.

i try not to assume anything.
