The USA should set some laws against racism because this is bad and no one has the right to make each other feel like less of a person, with these laws you can create a better world where people are thought less of because the color of their skin

Let me make something clear. I do not support racism, but I do support my side.

"The USA should set some laws against racism because this is bad and no one has the right to make each other feel like less of a person." Let's think about that first.
"this is bad" is a vague statement. Some think things are bad while others think it is good. Remember, the civil war was caused because of racism. Then, half the country believed it was correct. Though numbers are decreasing, it is apparent we should, as long no one is being physically harmed by others because of skin color, not pass laws against until racism has ceased to an understandable point. According to a recent poll, though it isn't as bad as before, 51% of Americans have at least some negative feelings against blacks, and would consider themselves racist.
"no one has the right" is a false statement. People have and should have the right to speak their mind (First Amendment). If people have "prejudice directed against someone of a different race" then they can have "prejudice directed against someone of a different race" as far as their opinion counts goes. Yes, their opinion counts, this is a democratic-republic nation.
