Never has a human population been found that has no racial stereotypes. Not in other cultures or far-flung countries. Nor among tiny tots or people with various psychological conditions.
Children with Williams syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that makes them lack normal social anxiety, have no racial biases. They do, however, traffic in gender stereotypes, said study researcher Andreas Meyer-Lindenberg of the University of Heidelberg in Germany
The American Psychiatric Association has never officially recognized extreme racism (as opposed to ordinary prejudice) as a mental health problem, although the issue was raised more than 30 years ago. After several racist killings in the civil rights era, a group of black psychiatrists sought to have extreme bigotry classified as a mental disorder. The association's officials rejected the recommendation, arguing that because so many Americans are racist, even extreme racism in this country is normative—a cultural problem rather than an indication of psychopathology.

The ones who claim to be not racist have the real problem.Man has always been tribal,it's in our dna all a part of self preservation.My thoughts are everyone is racist in one way or another,either that or you're a liar.Personally I'd rather put my trust in a racist than a liar.on a thread about London I had a guy pull the race card for me saying that a lot of the rioters were black-the truth isn't racism,yet he started spouting about my fellow Scots without realising that it was racism by his standards.the masses have been brainwashed to see racism as not normal when it is.

When I was growing up in a predominately white and hispanic area, there was a huge Vietnamese refugee infiltration in southern California during the 70s. At first I was very scared being less than 10yrs old. They were different, loud, rude and smelled funny. They used to dig in our trash cans and eat our neighborhoods cats. Many of them were caught with their garages filled with hanging skinned cats They refused to learn how to speak English, were given loans for nice cars and houses.....I became very racist against them at an early age.....
I moved away from California and have not really encountered any in many years, but the thought of them bring back memories of intolerance and anger....Not something I am proud of at all........
You have ignorant hicks who hate people simply due to them being "black" and then you have racists who notice certain patterns through everyday interaction decide that a certain group may have lower status in a society.
