Is it too much in some people DNA to get along with another human from a different race? Thoughts anyone?

It seems to be ingrained to be suspicious of people who don't look similar to the people you grew up with. More diversity and mixing are diluting this source of racism, and I suppose can be expected to continue to do so, so long as we avoid ghettoisation.

But another more potent source of racism and prejudice is the tendency to divide the world into 'us' and 'them', and to blame 'them" for things going wrong in our own lives. Even if everyone looked the same, people would form 'in groups' based on place of birth, language, religion, etc. As an explanation of the world, it's too appealing both to individuals and to demagogues to go away.

Very good post and I completely understand what you are saying. It's just a shame and so frustrating that it's been instilled in human beings. Thanks for reply and taking your time to reply. sometimes it harder for the mixed race couples due to the fact you would get white and black people both sharing their hatred for you. Not that ALL white or black are ALL racists.

Racism won't be stamped
Out as long as the daily mail and Fox News are still running.

However britain will be 33% non white by 2024 and 50% non white by 2036.this will reduce racism. It will never be erased though.

Just because its gonna be less white wont reduce racism. Browns are racist to blacks as blacks are to brown and so on. Just because different races live together doesnt mean they get on. Deep down people can be prejudiced. Simetimes its life and culture.

Sorry but it's not just only whites that are racist people EVERYONE in which ever race has its racist people in it . Killing off the white race won't make the world perfect. Religion has a big part to why most people won't accept people and this is why we people of the world are still suffering from the holy war. There is nothing holy about it, it's all about paper money and power. Which is to do what no feed the world not house our homeless not help our sick children not to feed our hungry people who are dying everyone minute of every day.
