• 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • You can't get rid of it completely

    I am only posting here because of the BLM Movementing spreading lies about stopping racism. You can't completely get rid of racism there will always be that one person who will call the other the n word but making a movement to guilt trip white people is not helping stop racism ether but rather making it worst.

  • Hopefully it will not be as prevalent. Government fuels racism. Special programs for minorities are good but incentives take from another race leaving bad feelings.

    If people were more educated, (educated might be the wrong word), If people did their own research and read the history and the memoirs of soldiers and the truth of Lincoln and the emancipation there outlook would be very different. You have to have been on both sides of this fence to understand. If you can debate both sides equally you have risen to a new level of understanding. There are multiple sides to the racism story and many distorted. As a human race we must acknowledge the superior traits of all races and come to terms that we are different in many ways but except it.

  • Equality Will Come Eventually

    Equality among everyone will come eventually. It may take a huge upheaval in modern society, but it will happen eventually. Racism happens out of fear of the unknown. Humans will always fear someone who is different than they are. It's not a matter of usurping fear from the human condition. Eliminating racism is about overcoming the fear.

  • It Depends on What We Classify as "Race"

    Science and technology will continue to change humanity. There may very well be a time in the future where humans are merged with technology or some humans are chimeria hybrids. If transhumanism and genetic engineering come to pass/ advanced we will likely have an inferior vs genetically super society (not that I am against this per say) We may have robo humans fighting Manbearpigs in real life. In this case yes the genetically "perfect" would fight against the average people and the Manbearpigs of the future.
    Assuming we are just talking about contemporary race and culture I feel that there will be a point where the concept of pure race will be a curosity of the past.
    Maybe I've watched too much South Park, but one day people won't care about race and humans will just be humans. There will be other types of things to discriminate about but I think race may be fading away.

  • More Cross-Racial Marriages

    Cross-racial marriages are so common now days - as they should, that eventually there will not be a large distinction between skin colour. At some point, though some people may have slightly darker skin colours and others will not have as completely dark, it will be almost impossible to have racism - unless people get extremely nit-picky. However, it obviously depends.

  • Racism will always be here in the USA

    Racism has been around for years, and will be around for longer. There's always gonna be that one person with a different opinion and vision. Everyone's opinions are different from another. People will always discriminate against different religions and skin colors and others open beliefs.Chelp U.S. Over come this problem.

  • If we want to survive the collapse of our planet, we cannot afford to have racism.

    In some billion years, the sun will swallow Earth. We have to work together every innovator or else we will extinct. I think our will of surviving is stronger than our fear of each other. However, there is of course a long time until this happens, so it might be hard to imagine.

  • Let's end racism.

    It is the devils plan to divide and conquer. We need to see all people as individuals . Show our love for each other on the inside. Love is not black or white. Let us see each other for who we are. This has nothing to do with the color of our skin. After all, who really knows what color Jesus skin was? Would it make any difference? I think not! Let's put racism in history and leave it there and move forward giving respect that iis so deserved and long overdue.

  • Racism is a killer

    Racism destroys people's lives and if no one wants the major houlocast to repeat itself, then it should exist anymore. Those who are not white can do what white people can do too, if we destroy their lives our population decreases. It can happen to anyone. Treat others how you want to be treated.

  • No It Won't

    Racism is slowly but surely going away as time passes and the older generation dies and the younger generation grows. As this happens the older ideals of "old America" become history as the new ideals of whats now modern America become stronger and more influenced in today's every day society.

  • 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.
