Because they are judgmental freaks and can't get over the fact that just because somebody has different skin color they should be treated differently. Truly I don't think that. Everybody should be respected and treated equality.

Reasons were racist, here we go

1. parents are racist
2. another race did something too another in the past
3. Culture
culture is affected by where you live, hanging bags of water to keep mosquitos away in california too kissing in other countries could be taken a complexly different way in each,

4. what you see wrong in your culture isnt wrong in mine
some customs in each country is wrong in the next, so they judge each other

5. Its a joke
you nazi, did you just break out of jail,ect.

some races are just born into a certain area of the world, who's to say you wouldnt be a different person if you had less $ ect.

6. some people just feel plain superior.

It's a natural human tendency for people to identify with others who seem similar to them, and to demonstrate hostility towards others that they perceive to be significantly different from themselves. Such differences don't have to be racial, but race is usually an immediately recognizable difference.

I think that among those people who are racist it comes from fear of the unknown, and also learned hatred. It is a combination of cowardice, and ignorance.

Because some people feel that they are better than others. They belive that if someone is not like them that person is not worth anything at all. They hate diversity, they belive that their race is the best, and that no one else comes close. These people are jerks.

They don't realize the tone of your skin or where you come from makes no difference in personality or how skillful you are at something.

Because were all human. Everyone has there strengths, and challenges. It's Ignorance, fear,and anger. But remember everyone has issues in there life, and lets not judge them. But I was thinking, Isn't it racist for a black person to hate white people? I mean because of the skin color? It bothers me that people don't see it as the same.

Because some people can't accept the fact that they are not the only people in the word and will do anything to bring the other race down. In a simple sentence some people are just plain mean

I think it's because people just think it's funny to make fun of other people's race. I don't think that's funny. They just want attention from others.
