Racism won't end because people can't understand other walks of life. For example a white man will never understand what it's like to be a black man much life a woman can't understand what it's like to be a man. This creates a lack of reliability between races and cultures and when people don't understand something they fear it. look how people react to Islam for example. A few extremist attacks happen and then they think that there Arab neighbor is the next Osama bin laden. They can't understand or relate to Islam, so they fear what they fear what is unknown and the equation for racism is
fear + power = racism
that is why when a white police officer shoots a unarmed minority it is racism. because the police officer has the power and is afraid the minority will do something rash.
Racism can only end when people see people like how they see themselves other wise it will continue.

Let start off with with it's great to be debating with you today. Secondly, NO! Yes, racism is a difficult thing to completely kill, but it is in NO WAY as bad as you make it out to be! That police officer crap on the news is just leftist media trying to be an over all douche to rest of America by spreading lies. Yes, there are some real racists out there. But the amount has went from a majority to a minority in a little less than 100 years. while that sounds like a lot, America is still a VERY young country in the world.(200 yrs). 100 yrs is chump change compared to South Africa and others. But we can't have any TRUE racists in public any more, for fear of threats and screaming at them. This shows the INSANE progress America has, and will continue to make.

Racism comes from hate and fear and people are going to continue to hate and fear each other because that is human nature. For example if a Asian guy has more than a black guy he's gonna wonder why he doesn't have as much. The guy isn't going to blame himself so he gonna have set in his mind that this Asian guy is better off and has more because he's Asian. Eventually he'll get tired of his condition and blame Asian people for his condition his jealousy will become hate and then he will be racist.

I can definitely see where you're coming from. It IS human nature to blame our problems on others (including races). However, you can't deny the numbers and facts. While human nature is something to consider, our human nature used to be gather as much food as humanly possible and try to run from the hyenas. Humans have been known to change and grow throughout the ages, and that can be seen right now. In the Civil War, essentially everyone was racist. The North wouldn't let it's black soldier division's own any gear that wasn't broken our breaking. But we don't see ANYTHING as blatant as that today. the closest thing to that today was the video on facebook of the four black kids beating up a special needs white trump supporter, and that wasn't anything compared to yesteryear. Yes, Racism is alive, but it is definitely on it's last legs. Look at the facts.

Racism will never end. Even if it starts to a little, another person will become racist of the president, or his colleague. Racism is not something that will eventually end. It is in the people. I am mixed, and you know how racist some people are. I mean...

Racism isn't fear + power, it's being a cunt to people because of their skin colour.
