Depends on how you've been raised... if you've been around certain types of people all your life, you will not just magically wake up one day and be enlightened.

Its a gradual process...

If she does not mix with a lot of black people, is not active in the black community, her views will be skewed a certain way....

True, but it seems ingrained but she's still young enough to change her mentality because at this age she hasn't reached the point where these white tactics will affect her the most....her career and raising her own children. t that age how is youth used as an excuse... serious question

You're right, it has been ingrained. But she's still young enough to change her mentality for when these white tactics will mean the most....in her career and raising her children.

Exactly. That's why I posted about Gradient Lair. Perfect place to start learning about deconstructing the racism that she's internalized.

OP, moving to a new place won't change this. You have first become aware of what's really going on and then you'll likely find it easier to engage with other more positive people, especially black ones.
