  1. It turns out that racism is part of human nature. It starts as a survival mechanism for tribal cultures, as a selfish prioritization of the welfare of the tribe (us) over all others (them). This can be small things, but there are countless examples of it including an acceptable form of slavery as well. Instead of killing your enemies, you capture some and you use them. Some people might even have the idea it is better, because it is viewed as a form of forced integration, but it is still forced upon the captives. Even when there is no logical reason for the us and them stance, people will find a reason to create a group to dislike. Any skin color in minority or cultural minority simply makes it easier, but all groups are subject to bias if the elements are there. There is still slavery today, because there are those who feel justified in the use of it. You can change political views over time and you can slowly change the course of the river of human behavior, but it takes a very long time and at our core, people like having someone to not like…and it shows.
