Why is racism still in existence (Page 8)
Brian377575: Ugh, I think these days people just use racism/sexism as an excuse to get what they want.
james1990cooI: racism will never go away. Every race feels they are better. and racists usually pass their ignorance onto their children by telling them all their BS
socialdistortion: Racism is based on prejudice and ignorance which are human traits. So, racism will only go away when the human race is eradicated.
lavendar_star: I dont agree with you socialdistoration, I don't think there innate human traits. After all ignorance and prejudices are social construction taught to people or from a lack of knowledge and understanding . If people think its human trait then gives it license for it to continue, one could argue amongst ancient civilisation racism was far less prevalent than it is now even though different races were interacting just as much.

slasian: As long as there are dogs, snakes and butterflies racists will exist. says to and we shall to our differences.
GIRLSRULETHEWORLD: why be a racist? we are all people i think that is so hurtful and people should wise up colour don't matter its a genetic thing not suhn that ppl shud b teased abt rasicm should not continue i just dnt see why anyone shoud give a racist comment to someone...it pathetic ..
Sorang: ....we can say all we what here.. but its means nothing... IRL some treat others 'being racist' without aware of it.... even here whilst in chatroom, some picky only talking with 'their people only' ~lol
wolf_92: Because some people just can't seem to let it go. Everybody needs to grow up and realize that no one race is better than the other.
chimp0ut: Racism exists because the scientific consensus on intelligence justifies it:
slasian: The land of the yellow bull people say(it is my land too) once everything was one and once again it will be one again but in the amid chaos is must for us to realize our ones we had to first fully understand our divers existence.
GIRLSRULETHEWORLD: we are all jus people so y does color hav to matter it dosen't we are all human beings!
lavendar_star: so racism is justified because of pseudo science, Hitler would be proud of you chimpout with such logic. Those racist theory associating race with intelligence have been discredited by numerous studies. Also Wikipedia not exactly reliable anybody can add to that even neo nazis which is the type of people who voice your opinion.
Furthermore, considering theres no such thing as a pure race which has been proving with DNA mapping, that most people have mixed ancestry so that would be big flaw in that theory and that there is hardly any difference between races except for skin colour and your bone marrow. Anyway, no point discussing things with people who post comments like that you have your opinions and nobody is going move you from it.

Brian377575: Racism in some form or another will always exist unfortunately. The only cure will be through education. People just have to be open to learning. I think women turning into feminists are the REAL problem these days.
Sassy_Grl: Why is Racism still alive? My own opinion on the subject is Racism is still alive all over the world because people cant seem to let what yours, mine & their ancestors did a hundred years ago.. go.. What the world needs to do is instead of living in the past start living today! You dont have like everyone you meet ...but you shouldn't hate them for their Religion, Race, or Color of their skin. On this topic I could go on forever but ultimately we all have the choice to make it stop... you choose.
