Why is racism still in existence (Page 4)
ajb911: because it natural to fear what is and looks different colour for example if there were purple people eaters some people would hate them just because they are purple and different.
quigley: is racism really a bad thing? probably not if you do not harm anyone, the problem here is that the rulers have forbidden people from even having a discussion about racism as they have branded it evil. keep in mind you can talk about all manners of other filth such as child molesters serial killings etc and some of these things are glorified on tv on a daily basis and young people gobble it up as the norm. methinks there must be a secret agenda on the so called racism issue.
Robin1517: Racism exists because people are judgemental creatures. RACISM IS NOT A HUGE PROBLEM! People always judge each other on *all sorts of appearance*, sexuality, intelligence, how much money they make, religion, what their hobbies are and who their friends and family are. We judge each other because this is natural for us to, without this how would we decide who we didn't like or who we wanted to be our friends?

dredds: If chicken and cow can talk, they will shout "why you human keep eating me!!! you damn racist!!!"
So it's matter of knowledge that an individual perceive about what is right and what is wrong.
A native person that have no such knowledge don't even know what racist is.
What they know when they feel threatened it'll be a hell to pay. The same goes to the animal or beast.
So if you wan't to stop racist gain your knowledge about the feel of others. Focus on the similarities not the dissimilarity.
And yeah it's absolutely right, 1 out of 10 people in this world are just too dumb to gain knowledge, so you can't push it to the average.
There will be no world where all people will be as smart as you. There still always be the dumbass.

slasian: so u r a man to stand up then don't u think that the very fact of the exictance of races doesn't have any thing to do with racism? u are still asking why is light there when it is noon!
Pulchraes: I think...to explain simply...racism is an opinion. Sure, an opinion bred by years of prejudice and a whole lot of other factors, but an opinion all the same, isn't it? If we were more open-minded, maybe racism wouldn't exist.
3IR3: "Racism" is just an excuse and a new concept...it's been created by the immigrants from the 1/3 world who are unable to adapt to the Western way of life.
This word didn't exist a few decades ago.
And for all the dumb americans out there who think racism is a synonym of white supremacy, let me tell you that all the black gangs are "racists" too.
slinger_cherry: because there has been and always will be evil in the world. plain and simple as that
P4IN: Religion and nationalism are very common institutions that clearly inspire racism, in some cases electing to endorse it.
Daniel . .: There is no such thing as racism to me . . we people are all the same . our dna is 99.9% exactly the like everyone else's. Put the rest % to good use.
VinceMoon: First off, Jesus was black. You can't live in the desert all of your life and NOT get a suntan, so that dilemma can be laid to rest (only to rise again!...Easter joke?...anybody?). Racism will continue to thrive since most people around the globe are afraid of what they do not know or care to understand. In America, racism will eventually die out because one: all of the older generations who lived off of racism are starting to die out themselves and two: the younger generations do not care about such things. The only way to stop racism now? Tell someone that they should stop being racist, even if it's your friends or your family. Only then can we learn to love those who are different. Like the man said, all you need is love.
Kered66: racism will exist and has existed since man first banded together into tribes. what we are now told is simple base tribalism. it is on full display in africa every day where the people are of the same skin colour but believe the enemy tribe are anathema to their very exsistance none of this is new..
CoIin: Egad! My honor has been besmirched. Unsheath your weapon, you purple cad. Bananas at dawn. Let's see where you find a purple one. Tee hee.
goodnewseverybody: Racism still exist because of hate for one another due to stereotyping or labeling each other instead of looking and loving each other as individuals. We need to show love more! Where is the love?..."Can you feel the love tonight"......
