I'm sure it’s not my first experience but the first I remember well. I was about 13 living in CA and I was outside when a girl about 8 was talking to a boy, who couldn’t have been anything more than 5 or 6 years old, from her upstairs balcony and called him the "N" word. Before that, I'm sure I had heard racist jokes along the way and had already possibly seen a movie or 2 that opened my eyes to the ugliness of racism because I was immediatley bothered by it and knew how wrong it was.
