9. Racism is learned

It's not ingrained when people are born. They learned from their family or friends or teachers. If anyone is different from u and pointed out this difference as bad! Color, culture, customs etc seem to make people in America feel they must be superior.

If white people would get to know others different from them, they would find out how stupid and ignorant their ideas are.

If your a poor ignorant white then making someone else beneath you is your option.

Btw I am white but I grew up having friends of many nationalities.
I've also spent 10 years working on Lakota Indian Res.
