when we dislike or fear something about ourselves, we tend to dislike those traits in others. It's easier to displace that self-hate onto others than face it oneself. Those with a lot of self-hate tend to find a lot of people to displace it onto, and categorizing people by a single trait is an easy way to direct that. why are Human being still racist? how do we stop this?

I dont think it can be stopped. It's human nature after all to fear things, people, creatures, and I dont think it's possible to take that away. It's sad that some people are so racist against a certian race or religion. But maybe it's just natural, like a survival technique that's gone haywire. You know in time perhaps we will all get along, every race, every religion, but in my opinon it's unlikely. People are to different to see the other side of things. So i suppose for now we'll just meander on through life hoping for a better way.
