ANSWER #10 of 11

Some people are "afraid" of what is different than them, therefore they are ignorant. They think that they are better because they are white, black, Asian, religious, non religious...anyone that is different is "under" them. They will never understand that everyone (and every one's beliefs or non beliefs) are equal...people are people, there are non that are better than any others.

How can I appeal to people so they will watch my video?
ANSWER #11 of 11

because some members of ALL races behave in a manner that is either inapropriate or illegal. and sometimes behaving in a manner that makes them appear to believe they are superior to someone else, or above the rules of society.

no matter what RACE these people belong to- it casts a negative shadow across that entire race- in some peoples opinion. so it becomes easy to condemn a race because of the actions of a percentage.

if some people gave up illegal and criminal activities - and devoted their lives to creating a POSITIVE impact on the world- I believe that the racists would decline in numbers- simply because they wouldn't have case files and legitimate concerns to back up their beliefs.

now back to reality- as long as people are alive on this planet I think racism (in one form or another) will always exist- it may not focus on color of skin but we will continue to have negative feelings towards people of different RELIGIONS, SEXUAL ORIENTATION, HOBBIES, ETC. - the list could continue on for a long time.
