Embedded fear of most black males

Jeffrey Todd,
Portland, OR

I don’t consider myself to be prejudiced but I sometimes experience a feeling of uneasiness when I encounter certain individuals – both black and white. You can’t look at somebody and know whether they’re just going about their business or if they mean you harm. How do I undo this feeling? How do I learn to trust everyone equally? Is that even possible? I don’t want to feel this way but it’s a crazy world these days.
