racism is inherent in humans; we are born with it. Even animals are born with it. it predates humans; however let us walk into pre-history, back when the tribe was the important thing. any stranger or anyone different was a cause of concern. other people who were not of the tribe brought war, they stole resources, and brought disease. of course, as humans spread, they encountered many who were different and in order of self preservation of the family tribe would shun those who were different; even fighting with them. this eventually led to the type of racism we see today. even animals will abandon their young if they are born differently than the others. Some individuals will say I am not a racist, yet they bring color into play. For instance, assume a white person sees a black person climbing a tree. they will more-than likely tell others that they saw a black man climbing a tree, yet if it was a white person climbing the tree, they would simply say they saw a person climbing a tree. Yet what about my 8 year old son, he has many friends who are different. yes but in growing up with them, they are part of his tribe, they are not different to him. racism is inherent in humans. change my mind.
