Okay, so yeah, what about racism? Take for example a forum, like this one , where a person doesn't even know what race another is unless told in some way. Theoretically, a racist could have a conversation with the very race he/she despises most and even become friends with said person not even realizing. Now if they were suddenly made aware of it, even after becoming friends, would this change their relationship and why?
I'm using this example for one reason only, to prove the pure stupidity of racism. I've personally met and conversed with people of all shapes, sizes and colors . I've found that we're all one race actually, and that would be the human race.
So I guess what I'm wondering is: why are there racists? I know the KKK is still rampaging in the US. I actually have racist grandparents . I've also seen a lot of it all over the place online and in person. So is racism dying out? Can it be eliminated? What drives it?
I think it's mostly being passed on by parents and a generational hatred, but there must also be something else too. Any thoughts?
