Racism is a multi million dollar industry in the Black Community. Without Racism, what would Black Leaders decry as points of advancement? It can't be actual advancement, or it would be a failure.

A.Sterotyping ppl causes racism!
B.Unfamiliarity probably the biggest cause is this one...PPL FEAR WHAT THEY DO NOT KNOW!!!
C.Selfishness....If individuals aren't taught how to respect others, then the potential for the person to become racist is increased as well. This is why you will find that most caring individuals aren't racist. Neither are they sexist or anything else.
D.Environment u grew up in! If u was raised by racist...u most likely gonna be one...NOT ALWAYS..but often!

Ppl not taking the time to learn about and from each other...thats what causes racism!

Holding on to some believes and teaching it to your children..thats what keeps racism alive!

You may hate this response but its true. Not necessarily black people though. It is generally based on your culture and race as to what type of behavior you consider to be acceptable. So if you live around enough Mexican thugs and you don't like them you might become racist towards any Mexican that walks down the street dressed like those thugs before you know them. This is how modern racism is created. You will then generalize that all Mexicans are thugs except for the Mexicans who act black or white. This follows for all races. I should know I used to go to school with alot of ghetto ass Mexicans and blacks. I hated them, I seriously hated them. I hated the way they acted, the way they talked, and they were just horrible people to be around. They would start fights over nothing, disrespectful, loud, and the things they said were just flat out stupid. I then went to college and met well educated blacks and mexicans and can see that they aren't all like that. Not all people see the well educated people though and they are stuck seeing the same ghetto ass people over and over again.

WHITE PEOPLE cause racism. They conceived of it, they invented the racial taxonomy, and even after they found out 10 years ago from the Human Genome Project that despite appearances, we are all genetically the same (no separate races), they still classify into groups and name the groups "races".

Whites have strange behaviors, but they are predictable:

The are compelled to label EVERYTHING in an effort to "organize" them. The process of classification is inherently a divisive act. You take the whole and then divide it into parts and label the parts. They cant help it. Whatever they cant classify, they ignore.

I'm the furthest thing from a racist, after serving in the Marines and fighting with all races next to me, I've come to acknowledge that we all are very similar with the same desires and emotions. But I honestly believe it's the black man who is to blame. Out of all of my friends and family I know one racist, sad to say my grandma. But she has an excuse, she experienced first hand the civil rights movement, she was brainwashed from childhood to hate blacks. Everyone my age (26) could care less, I've got better things to spend my time on.

I live in Little Rock, AR. We're in the history books for desegregation, but you'd never know it by driving around town. People I've talked to on the issue always say "You could never understand because your white." I feel like black people have this "oh poor me, I'm black" mentality, or "I'm black, you owe me something". I go out of my way to wave at black people in my neihborhood, and 75% of the time I get ignored, like I've lost my mind. I think until black people put the past behind them and stop blaming any confrontation on racism, then this is always going to be an issue.

Also, look at how many organizations have the word black in them. Ex; Black Entertainment Television, Black Mayors Association, Organization of Black Airline Pilots, the list is endless. Do a google search with the words Black+Organization. I mean seriously? I would be very curious to see the public reation if I came out with the Organization of White Airline Pilots. Black people segregate themselves.
