• It's human nature to trust those we identify with more.

    So when those times come of disagreement and conflict, race will more easily become involved, if it can become involved.

    That's human nature.

    We have the ability to rebel against what human nature compels us towards and decide that all people are equal in the eyes of God regardless of how we may feel.

    And it wouldn't matter anyway. If racism wasn't the issue, it would be something else.

    People can literally hate those who support another basketball team when both their support of their team, and those they hate only support the teams they do because of where they are. It's not even ideological, theological, or racism. It's simply location.

    We are inclined to trust those we more identify with and have suspicion for those we don't.

    It's actually sort of healthy in such a violent and uncaring world because it's what allows us to profile and catch those who might do us harm.

    We demonize profiling, but profiling is a fact of life. You aren't going to watch everyone because you'll miss those you should have caught. You're going to pay attention to those most likely to fit in with what you are looking for so that you can narrow your search and not be as likely to miss something.

    We are what we are, and that's just how it is. Likewise, we are obligated to use our intellect and understand when what we are compelled to do is nonsense and when it is wise.

  • We're hard-wired for it.

    Human beings (and nearly every other species as well) feel most comfortable (less threatened) when dealing with those most like themselves. It's innate .... Hard-wired into our being .... For survival. I believe, with time and experience, we can feel less threatened by those different than us but it will never completely go away.

  • The brain doesn't allow for it.

    There will always visibly be a difference between skin color. There will always be that difference. There will always be an us and them mentality. Racism wont be as apparent in say 50 or 100 years but subconsciously we will always think there is a difference. I am strongly in favour of eliminating racism but there will always be a difference.

  • Yes yes yes

    At this time African Americans were treated differently from white people. They weren’t treated equally. Martin Luther King decided to change this. He led non- violence protests against this problem. Doing this was very dangerous though, he got arrested and his house got bombed. That is why racism is bad

  • Some people feel different then others.

    I think as long we are alive there will always be racism on this earth. We will always have two sides of story no matter what. We might be able to control it but it will not be stopped. There will always be people who feel that they are above some people. For these reasons there always be racism.

  • We Could Overcome It - If We All Worked Together

    Yes, racism will always be an issue in society as long as we all continue to focus on racism instead of allowing it to die a natural death. Racism continues to exist because we allow it to. Let’s ask the media to report on minority families who live and work in integrated areas without experiencing harassment. Let’s tell gang members we will pay their way through college if they will leave their gangs and get their GED’s. Let’s stop constantly throwing gas on a fire that could die out of its own accord. Let us all work together in unison, all men and women.

  • Yes, racism will always be part of society. It is intertwined with human emotions and human emotions can not always be controlled.

    Human emotions are greatly influenced by fear. So to say that racism will not be part of society in the future is to say that in the future humans that exist in society will no longer have any fear of each other or random events. Even if most people in society stop acting with ignorance there will always be groups that teach racism to its members. Some of the founders of racial groups are people that have suffered violent crimes from racial groups that they don’t belong to. As long as violence exists, fear will exist, and fear is the basis for racism.

  • Racism Will Never go Away

    As much as I am in favor for equality, It is not possible in this world. I am someone who treats all people as if they are one, but not all people are like that. Not all people agree with different backgrounds being able to get married. Many countries strongly only like their own people, and consider all who are not of them, or of their religion different, and or an enemy. One day revaluation will prevail but that will be someday down the road not now.

  • People Aren't Very Bright

    Most people are too stupid and lazy to judge people on an individual basis. Also, many people suffer from low self-esteem, so it gives them a confidence boost to think that people of different races are of lesser value. As long as these two factors remain, there will be racism.

  • Racism always exists

    As much as I hate racism. Racism will always exist unfortunately. As much as I don't want it to it will always be an issue in society. You 47% who say no are so naive. People will always hate a person who is different to them it's in our nature.

  • Comparing racism to sexism

    To be able to answer this question, you have to think about one other thing: can you see a future where sexism isn't a problem anymore? I mean women have also been treated badly forever and only recently really got a say in this matter. We are moving towards a more equal society and women have never had as much power over the world as they have today. So why can't it be the same regarding racism? I mean we'll (almost) always see it someone is female, as easily as if someone is of colour. And sure, there will always be an issue with some idiots holding on to old belief, but on the other hand there are still fucking flat earth believers today, so I mean..

  • If we all come together as one.

    If we all come together as one we could prevent racisim/There are many possible impacts of racism in the future as of young children being one of the major ones. If racial discrimination is still continued in the upcoming years, the less fortunate humans would get less of a chance of surviving. Income & Tax rates would rise and the price of homes & food would be higher. Jobs for these commitments will be harder to get as some companies might not approve of or accept certain ethnic groups. If the adults in the family don’t have any type of money to live, the younger members of the family will struggle and would be forced to go beg like the past. In Ireland, many decades ago, children as young as 5 were forced to go beg out in the streets risking their lives because of the much bigger men always rushing past to get their equipment and food to survive. Younger children may be taught about racism at a young age and also experience it in their upcoming years during education. Other families may not be particular to get along with another culture and teach their young ones to stay away. This causes to bullying and unfortunately, eventually as many teens are doing these days, self-harm and suicide. However, racism could be stopped and abolished in the future. High-class members of the government of 1st world countries can make certain rules and laws for everyone else to abide by. Parents should use harsh discipline ( Non - Violent) or teach ways to accept others for who they are. They should also teach their children ways to avoid racial discrimination on what to do or how to react if they are put in a situation or involved in an act of racism. Tell them the positive and more sensible things to do.

  • No way,people will soon understand why we look different

    These days we have more technology and now we or scientist know why our skin color is so different. When people migrated their skin color sort of adapted in a way. Plus, biologists or whatever have figured out we all came from Africa that saying Africa is the heart of Earth

  • Some People are just stubborn

    If you go all the way back, well before slavery was abolished you could obviously see that minorities or races of color were always treated like animals no matter what. They were chained, beaten, and even murdered just because they were different. So many of them were abducted from their homes in their own countries, brought to America to perform duties that whites were too lazy to do, and were treated just as the Europeans were in British. If you ask me, all white people are hipicrits.

  • It will be stop eventually.

    Even though people want racism to end, we really can't anything unless we change first. Parents will try to teach their kids, but if those same kids see their parents do it, what clicks is: oh, so if my mom/dad does it, then I can do it to. So to get through to the kids, we need to change our own actions first.

  • No, because no

    It won't because even the youngest of children are racist. And I don't believe this is going to change anytime soon. Plus everyone I know is racist in some way. As long as violence exists, fear will exist, and fear is the basis for racism. Just as aceman34 said. <3

  • Yes it does matter

    People are always going to be treated different but i think it will never go away it is going to happen and it is never going to stop but it does matter to people sxnsaxons sx x x x x x x x x x x x x x x

  • If humanity increases it's intelligence over time

    If by some luck people Come to the idea of critical thinking and using evidence based reasoning then racism should not really exist. I think currently we are all too quick to come to irrational, emotionally lead conclusions without looking into our actual reasoning. I don't think it's impossible anyways.
