  • Racist action is not natural but Racism is.

    I believe people are inherently subconsciously judgemental. We judge and associate new experiences and people with others from previous times. Not just with race, but race is a commonly seen example. However, I do believe that we have the power to choose for ourselves if we will allow our subconscious thoughts to control out actions. One who behaves in a racist manner is morally incorrect based upon our current society (and my) values. One who silently passes judgement, whether knowing to or not, yet doesn't alter how they treat a person because of that judgement would be abiding by today's level of moral straightness to an extent (however among some audiences subconscious judgement is frowned upon). With all this, I must say that right and wrong are incredibly subjective terms and therefore only used them to reference the values our society typically holds.

  • "Racism" is both learned and natural.

    Thousands of years ago, natural defense mechanisms dictated that your particular group or clan protect themselves from people unlike themselves. Whether people admit it or not, it is still just as prevalent today as many years ago. Today, we recognize our differences and we call it racism if someone of a particular race says something negative or condescending about another race. How we are taught acceptance and tolerance is what seems to make a difference.

  • We fer those who are different

    People have always feared those who are different. You can automatically see a person is "different" from you if they are a different color, so naturally we are wary of them. This can lead to hatred. We tend to think of those who are different as against us, even if it isn't true. So yes, racism is natural, but that doesn't male it right.

  • Racism is natural

    Studies have found that when whites see black faces there is increased activity in the amygdala, a brain structure associated with emotion and, specifically, with the detection of threats.
    Racism is a natural human instinct, and part of a natural part of human evolution.
    Ps sorry on my bad English.

  • Darwin - natural selection

    Competition. We have not always lived in a environment of plenty. In the distant past we all competed for food. We may yet again do so and what ever survives will be the chosen ones. They will be the new race, the next step. What ever their origins. My guess is they will be oriental.

  • It is human nature.

    Humans are naturally fallen and sinful beings. It is completely natural for us to be more comfortable around and prejudiced to those who are similar to us. I would rather be with a group of black people rather than white simply because it is more comfortable to be with people I can recognize and understand. While it is natural, it is not moral.

  • It is 100% Natural

    Why we have different skin colour or physical characteristics, It's all natural. Created by Mother Nature or we can say God.
    We have to ask ourselves that this is right our wrong
    Humans divided into many ethnic groups , all have their specific identity. And they have Natural rights to save their ethnicity

  • It is natural

    I believe it is natural because we have a bias towards our own race or likeness, whether we act upon it or not. This therefore leads one to see other races not as superior which is the stem of America's problems and why they are so hard to abolish today. Personally I would say that I am not racist but that doesn't mean that I don't get more anxious being around an African American male over a Caucasian male. It's natural to trust your own race over others, whether that is a correct assumption or not.

  • We survived by being inherently racist a long time ago.

    If we naturally accepted all animals and races, we would be dead by now. Man survived due to fear mechanisms hard-wired into the brain; the fight or flight response to what we perceived to be danger. Anything we considered 'not one of us' was thought to be dangerous - and that fear mechanism is only repressed by civilized laws and societal rules.

  • Don't think so.

    NO! Racism isn't natural! What gives a person the right to hate another person(s) just because their not the same color? I feel that if you have it your heart to hate it's because of a sad and sorry upbringing. And, if it isn't due to the upbringing, it's due to you being turned down or insulted by that other race which made you turn to hating on that race if not all races. Get over it, because you have too many different races here in the U.S. and we're not going anywhere, and there's nothing you can do or say that will change that.

  • It's a behavior

    I do not feel like racism is natural. I am a firm believer that it is a learned behavior. Studies show that you can place two babies, of different color, in a room with toys and they have no problems playing with one another. They learn these racial behaviors from parents, friends, relatives, tv, etc. It's sad that racism even exists.

  • No, racism is a learned behavior.

    Racism is a terrible stigma on our society that is unnatural. We know racism is unnatural because children play with one another regardless of race. It is not until an adult or social norms start to intrude, that children internalize racism and begin to practice racism. There is no evidence to suggest that racism is not learned.

  • Racism is a learned trait

    When you are born you are not born racist. When you are born you do not have any opinions on skin colour but, if your parents are racist then you grow up learning that trait. No one is simply born thinking black people are bad or white people are good.
