    Edit: Thanks for the chat Angela22. Believe it or not, I'm having a sort of similar conversation on another forum about a completely different issue, and everyone is basically telling me the same thing: "Stop worrying about what other people think". I'll try.

    I think about younger, more impressionable people (kids, teens, young adults) who might be influenced by someone like that. It can cause them to become like that and it'll cause them to internalize it which will be a bigger problem as they become older.

    Well if it's not your children, that's not really your responsibility for how they turn out. From my point of view, it seems as if you're taking on too much, only destroying your peace of mind for people who get off by putting down black folk and making us upset.

    That's true.

    Well, what should I do about it? I know some people say it never bothered them, but there are some people (like me) who it bothered at some point. How does one get over it?

    Try to get to the root of your hate and dismantle it from that end.

    Or just find ways to take your mind off of it when it stirs up til it dies down.

    Self haters don't no they are displaying or speaking self hate. Self haters don't know what you're talking about when you say self hate. That's been my experience.
