That's a lot for this space. Scout, Jem and Cal see racism from a similar way. They all deplore it. Cal is actually black so she of course will have a personal perspective from experience that the kids do not have. Mrs. Dubose is really a product of the old South. Racism is ingrained in her. She doesn't really know why she is racist, she just is. We get the sense that, with a little time with the Finch family, she could have changed. Her heart wasn't really that hard.

They see racism.
