I think because it's a trait commonly found in adults who act like children.  Children is very closed minded views and just the general fear of what they don't understand. 
This seems to imply to me a sense of regression.

Do you really think a mature, sophisticated adult would even ponder on the idea that one race is superior than another?

Because it's moronic and ignorant and holds no factual or scientific basis?

That's basically it, racism is an off-shoot of xenophobia ( being scared of foreigners ), the Romans are an example of a mixture of xenophobia and racism where they thought themselves superior and had a paranoia when it came to outsiders visiting their country, for whatever reason it spread to simply being about colour, probably because as people interacted with each other they probably realised they couldn't really 'just' be afraid of foreigners anymore.

As for supremacists they're just basically the same type of people except massive cunts.

it's primitive because it is animalistic. a primate that sees something that does not look like its; so it becomes aggressive towards it.. which it thinks is for the sake of its survival.

There are many levels and extremes of racism. IMO Primitive forms of racism are not typically found in large quantities although they do still exist. Primitive forms meaning someone looking at someone and wanting to kill/enslave/or stay away from JUST because of the color of a humans skin. This is the only form of racism that should be considered primitive.

I think the form of racism that exists these days is more stereotyping then pure racism and comes from the interpretation that a majority of crimes are committed by minorities & gangs and is fueled by the perception that minorities and gangs are primarily blacks & mexicans.

I personally do not agree with stereotyping either, but I wouldn't call it primitive.

i didn't know that only 1 quality can be primitive?

primitive qualities are the "basic" ones.. the ones that primates used in order to survive. caring for offspring is one of them, being wary of species that do not look like yours is also another one.

This seems to imply to me a sense of regression.

Actually, very few children are racists. Those who are were usually raised in a racist environment, with closed minded adults who have a view of live that is more cynic than any child could possibly have.

Children are usually curious to what they don't understand; hence their desire to play.

Being afraid of something unseen before and different to yourself is normal. Forming a stereotype of something you have little understanding of is normal too. Feeling uneasy about that stereotype is still normal.

BUT being hostile towards a person just because the person is different or fits an unpleasant stereotype, is primitive/uncivilised. That "difference" could be weight, gender, sex orientation, and race is just part of it.

Racism is a subset of a general "inequality". It just seemed to get centre stage.

There is different degree of racism/inequality in everyone. It is entwined with pride, fear, and anger. A civilised person learn to subdue and primitive person let it dictate.

Yeah, this is true. Most children wont even notice the difference in skin colour. Racism is just hate and misplaced anger and those are gradually learnt later in life. If you're raised in an ignorant and xenophobic environment with racists as family, then yeah, there's a good chance you'll be a racist for therest of your life.

lol

that's so not true Cheesy

perhaps if you live in the USA lol

when you live somewhere where people with different skin colors are absent they do notice it..
they react to it, usually ask did that guy stay out at the sunlight too long or was he in some kind of an explosion, something like that Cheesy

Children are usually curious to what they don't understand; hence their desire to play.

Yeah, this is true. Most children wont even notice the difference in skin colour. Racism is just hate and misplaced anger and those are gradually learnt later in life. If you're raised in an ignorant and xenophobic environment with racists as family, then yeah, there's a good chance you'll be a racist for therest of your life.

lol

that's so not true Cheesy

perhaps if you live in the USA lol

when you live somewhere where people with different skin colors are absent they do notice it..
they react to it, usually ask did that guy stay out at the sunlight too long or was he in some kind of an explosion, something like that Cheesy


There was only one black kid in my class in primary school and I didn't think he was any different until an adult pointed it out and referred to him as 'black'. I think it's just social conditioning. Of course there are always exceptions, but if a kid did notice the difference they probably wont care that much about it.

Define racism.

You'll find a lot of what is flagged by the media as racism, doesn't not fit in to a "bad" definition of racism. Is recognising the benifits/drawbacks to physical differences between races, racist? Sure. Is it bad? No.

I have a lot of white, hispanic, and black friends. Always have. I see every bit as much racism out of the hispanics and blacks, as I do out of the the whites. Only difference is the hispanics and blacks are open about it.

Where I grew up, no one gave a shit about your race. In the region I live in currently, it's a much bigger issue. The politics of racism are big business.

You know, I just watched a Jon Stewart episode recently and he rightly pointed out that while America may have done a lot to tackle racism in the country people don't actually know what it is, what you're describing is a stereotype rather than racism which is why I openly laugh at and mock people who think using a certain word or describing people in a certain way is 'racist'.
