I judge individuals by their personal merits but shit like this coupled with spending a good portion of my life living in a poor black neighbourhood's definitely given me a bias against blacks and other certain groups of people.

You judge based on individual merits but acknowledge a bias based on experience grouping people together? Would you acknowledge your bias would be skewed pro-Black had you been raised in a rich Black neighborhood?

I dislike blacks as a group, not necessarily as individuals. Maybe my wording was poor.

I don't think those even exist in my country, and I doubt it. It's not like the only blacks I'd come into contact with would be from my neighbourhood.
