Growing up, maybe the way you were brought up or peer pressure...did you ever hate (or thought you hated a group of people) and then when you actually

grew up you realised that it was a really stupid and awful thing to do and thought...'why did I do that'?

I actually like this question, and my answer is no. I never really had animosity towards any group of people. I had some peers that didn't like POC or LGBTQ+, I never really bought into it.

Never. My parents had friends of all races and always taught us to be loving and accepting of everyone. My parents would never have allowed any racist talk in our home

No, I haven’t. But I think it’s because I was taught better. My grandpa dealt with issues being Jewish in Eastern Europe and when he came to the US, he for some reason to made it a point it let us all know a “black man taught him English” 😅 so the whole prejudice thing probably ended there if it existed at all.
No. I was really, really lucky in that regard. I was born to a mixed race couple and I grew up seeing all kinds of people welcomed into my parents’ home. There was a lot of racism on the outside, but home was a sanctuary and I never had to be afraid to introduce friends to my family.

I grew up in a southern U.S. town where racism was accepted among white folks. I followed along until college when I realized how wrong we were.
I've never known that it isn't in my soul to hate anyone for being different.
My family on the other hand often said offensive things but I always rebelled against that.

Sure, even killed one.

But such is the life of gangs and I turned things around quickly.

@jshm2 Life is like an ashtray....full of little doubts.

@AndysAttic Yeah well, such lives tend to end in cancer. Some things don't entertain opinions.

In my early days of foster care i hated kids that had real families ,i grew out of it pretty quickly though.
Nah. I wasn't brought up to hate anyone

I would not say hate, it's very hard for me to hate people. But I felt like homosexuality was unnatural. A lot of it was religious indoctrination. Fortunately I learned better, though I wish it had been earlier so i could have been more supportive of a friend back then.
