Racism is one of the most revolting things within the vicinity of humanity. It haunts our past, many times degrading the future.
causes of racism
aren't known to the majority of humans living on earth, however, a good fraction of them express it. . In order to
, or at least minimize its affects on humanity, we have to examine the root causes
. What are the possible causes of racism?
Why are some people racist? Where does racism come from? Some of these questions can be answered here:
One of the most common
causes of racism
Through television, through radio, through the internet, through music,
through books, and the like, the potential for stereo types to build are a definite possibility. When a person, especially one that is very
young, is exposed to stereotypes of a specific group for the first time, then that person will assume all are that way. Likewise, when a
source is constantly displaying negative things about a particular race, then that will affect
the overall opinions
Another very common, and probably the most common cause of racism is unfamiliarity.
People fear what they do not know or under
. If someone hasn't grown up around a particular race before, then there is more of a chance the person can be racist toward that
particular group. Not all the time, but when the person has already been fed negative stereotypes, and does not have the actual real life
experiences with at least one within the particular group, then the chances of racism are increased. This is why it is important for chil-
dren to be around other races at a young age: to ensure they get their minds used and adapted to being around them, and also to help
counterbalance any false stereotypes they may encounter in the future.
