Carrol, I am a few years younger. I started school in 1944. I learnt that blacks were sent to Africa because they disobeyed God -- I forget the Bible story used as evidence. Jews were unclean and other advanced information that was held back from you. Mind you I do not mean that all the teachers were bigots who spewed out such stuff, but it was pretty common.
