I used to be scared of blacks when I was 19 or 20 years old , now 30, I see them as any other people. did I grow up and mature?

I used to be intimated going to areas with many blacks even though I didn't think I was racist. I just had very little exposure to them.

but now that I am 30, I see them all the time in the train or in public and they don't scare me anymore and I see them as any other folks like any other race of people.

did I change through maturity?


what made me change is the fact of having more life experience being around all kinds of people and the fact that I never had any blacks harm me at all. most blacks I come across are actually really nice to me with maybe a few bad apples that don't represent the vast majority of them 

Update 2:

im a white guy, and the irony of all this is that the most hostile and jerk people I come across were actually people of my own race

    No, it just means that you have had pleasant experiences with black people.

    Yes you realize now that color is just a color and people of all races can be good or bad.

    Yeah you did, I was the same way when I was younger but now the only black people ive met have been very friendly and cool guys who id want to hang out with. My mom was a little racist and called whatever rapper was on the Super Bowl last year a monkey so I think I was a little influenced by her but they’re actually just awesome people.
