Some "of us" yes; some no.
My parents waited until I voiced a concern, question,
observation or what-have-you and then agreed that whatever
I said was true. If I didn't have negative input, they let it go
ar that. If I did seem "bothered" by it, good or bad, they explained;
and never negatively.
Very blond (nearly white) hair, darker skin, accent different
than the local one.. etc. I was fascinated! by other accents!
I had to know how they sounded like that! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] I was envious
of darker skin; it looked so pretty !
(And with no need to try to "tan" - not fair.)

As far as I recall, I wasn't influenced one way or the other, I was naturally fascinated by people different to myself.At age 5 all I wanted was to go to Africa and play with the kids there happy dance , wear a lap lap and live in a grass hut.I am now the adult version of that ! smile2

I think... maybe... we are taught more by actions and events? My mom got along with almost anyone and everyone. So many different types of people were in our lives.
I remember my first meeting with actual "native American Indians" and all that I learned by living around them. Their culture fascinates me, as do many others.
When I was a lot younger, Mexicans were always around. Seems they love goat meat. lol
At other times, there was always someone new and interesting to be around. I think I grew up not seeing difference as anything at all.

I remember the similarities, not much difference.

"We are each burdened with prejudice; against the poor or the rich, the smart or the slow, the gaunt or the obese. It is natural to develop prejudices. It is noble to rise above them." ~ Author Unknown

"Preconceived notions are the
locks on the door to wisdom." ~ Merry Browne

"Judgements prevent us from
seeing the good that lies
beyond appearances." ~ Wayne W. Dyer

"One day our descendants will think it incredible that we paid so much attention to things like the amount of melanin in our skin or the shape of our eyes or our gender instead of the unique identities of each of us as complex human beings." ~ Franklin Thomas
