Are you sure that you meant "internalised racism"? That's when you feel negative bias towards your own race, so you "internalise" and accept racist believes for you and your pairs.
Regardless, people don't usually say that they "feel" their own racism, so I thought "I feel I have racist bias against" or "I feel biased against" were better wordings.
