For instance, after years of dealing with the illegal Mexicans, those that won't assimiliate or those that do/sell drugs, it be overwhelming to the point you just don't want to hear from them. I'm guilty of one day saying ''these damn dirty, ugly, wetbacks'' to my close friends.
Here is the irony:
There are several pictures of me from ages 4-6. My playmate appears on those pictures. Many times we would hold hands. He was indeed a Mexican boy. I had no preferences at the time, none. In fact, my mother tells me that one day we kissed for a bit. That was technically my first kiss, lol.
Ironic isn't it? The very first boy I ever liked and kissed was Mexican. Now I've grown tired of the bad ones taking over and developed my own preference over what type of men to date. So we're not born with preferences nor prejudices over others?
Nah, I think there is a bias to same same but different. A simple example if you were living in northern Europe (possibly Canada) before commercially available vitamin D capsules then it would be a bad idea for you to have a baby to a guy with a dark skin because your baby would have vitamin D deficiency. Instead if you chose a white guy than baby would be fine.
The point is you would be giving up an evolutionary advantage for your baby. The same same but different preference is an evolutionary advantage to maintain local adaptions.
When you were a little girl you hadn't hit puberty yet. I think the rest is more learned bias/prejudice. Not that that is inexplicable. Lets say there are purple people. If you get mugged a dozen times by purple people you aren't going to be happy with them and you will become biased against them.
Yes I had to deal with lots of garbage from Mexicans. All these things happened:
- They don't care about learning basic English, not even after 10+ years
- All the other immigrants are assimilate but them
- They don't care about coming the legal way and plus have anchor babies
- A Mexican stole from my parents several years ago. My parents never got their money back.
- My former female Mexican friend (she's not my friend anymore) scammed me. I had to threatened to sue her to get my money back.
This bias didn't happen overnight though. It was a slow process. I'm fed up with their disgusting behaviors.
I can understand that.
