Worried about racism because I am black

Hi everyone :-) After booking my hotel I found out that Tunisia is well known for being openly racist to black people. I myself will be going soon to Hammamet with family and concerned about this as I have read many articles saying how dark skinned people are regularly attacked or mistreated. Can someone advise or give me some reassurance :(

There was a black family staying in the same hotel as me on my last visit to Tunisia and they enjoyed their holiday and said they would be returning. Enjoy your holiday.
