    I have met racist blacks and whites and been subjected to racial abuse from racist blacks.  I would say that there is no diference in quantity or in the form the abuse takes.

    I wouldn't generalize. But I hate it when people say black cats are bad luck and prefer to keep white ones. I am a mixture of both.

      In the UK we say that It's lucky to see a black cat.

    I don't think it can be stated accurately with that kind of generalization.  It comes down to individuals and their beliefs, life experience, etc. whatever race they are.

    I've found over my years, all folks, white or black are good people. But racism exists by both blacks and whites. It's a shame, because as small children we hug one another, play together and don't judge by color. I wish I could explain what happens to some as they get older.

    To each their own in regards to this question. It's difficult to say. There are a lot of people who are afraid of other people because of the color of their skin. What people are taught, weather it be through their family or television and movies, can have sway on their beliefs. Some people think outside of that box and are willing to get to know others no matter what any outside influence says. Racism is a product of environment, we are not born racist. Racism is racism no matter who it comes from.
