Why is racism dangerous?
Any promotion of hatred or bias based on misunderstanding of facts without knowing or understanding is bad in society that need a reasoned approach to dealing with issues.
It's dangerous because of how it makes others act upon others. To be racist doesn't mean to act violently, but as a person continues to hang on to racist thoughts and views, they may very well think they need to act on them in a violent manner; this is especially if they feel they are not getting their way through other means.

Racism has been around about as long as the human race has. We as humans have always been ignorant about several things, race being a big one but it is mainly because since th…en it has been passed down in the many families. And many children how are now the full grown women and men you see today were taught racism at a young age as if it was a principle. And it taught them to narrowly close minded about people of other races and unfortunately it is easily teachable and almost irreversible if someone really brainwashed their child into this way of thinking at a really early age. Of course they teach this to there kids and those kids teach this to their kids and so on. It exists everywhere in every country and properly why its so prevalent today, it's just pure ignorance.
According to Dr.Joe R. Feagin, systematic racisim are all the well-institutionalized patterns of discrimination that cut across major political, economic, and social organizat…ions in a society.
Racism is not a person, it's an idea. It's the idea that each race has distinct and intrinsic attributes; the belief that one race is superior to all others; prejudice or disc…rimination based upon race.
Martin Luther King Jr. faced many dangers in his fight against racism. Because he had opposition from many parts of the United States, one danger and the most violent one was …being assassinated. Sadly this happened. Before this tragedy he faced the danger of being arrested. This happened to him many times however his arrests were not for felonies thus he was granted bail and continued his crusade for equality and the end of racism.
racism huts everyone and eveyone has pride in their heritage and lineage. when you insult that, it's always personal, like you're insulting the very core of someone's identity….
Racist for example: someone is being racists
well..you know, i'd just be racist back, but, if you want to be logical and more...nice, you should probably tell someone about it. Hope I helped! :D
Historical racism is primarily based on the decent, ancestors and origins of a person or people.
Yes, the word racism is a noun, an abstract, common, uncountable noun; a word for a belief that certain races of people are by birth and nature superior to others; discriminat…ion or hatred based on race; a word for a concept.
It is a form of racism where specific cultures or a particular ethnicity are targeted.
Very bad ! NO-ONE should be made to feel inferior just because they come from a different country, or because they have a different skin colour.
I have been doing competitive road racing for a while. I have mostly seen support no racism as i can see. But i suppose there is out there.
Because that won't make people feel good. They will have low confidence in themselves and it will affect them for the rest of their lives.
What can racism do? 1. It can make one say, "Racism is feeling one is better than thoseof another culture. I don't feel I am better than any other, so I'mnot racist, I just w…ant you (insert here all the differences aboutyou..) as far away as possible from me and my 'kind' that I lovevery much. I hope your kind dislike/distrust/hate/avoid my kind asmuch as my kind dislike/distrust/hate your kind. So we equally andkindly dislike/distrust/hate/avoid each other. It is for the sakeof race preservation of dislike/distrust/hate/avoid" It can make one see people more as races and less as people hencenarrowing down his mind. 2. Indoctrination that people should get stuck in differences anddivisions like animals. 3. Divide the globe strictly into species in correlation to theirhabitats. 4. Making rules on what to do and what not to do based onappearance, what distance to be kept, where to go, etc. 5. Acts ranging from verbal abuse, taunts, fight provocation,prejudice, bullying, violence, until a Racial Holy War. 6. Make battlefield line easier to draw by distinguishing yourenemies by their homogeneous appearance. 7. Fill you with fear and prejudice that you get across the streetimmediately at the sight of someone outside of your race. 8. Sexual impotence since racist sentiments and propagandas instillin some people frustration, hate and self-consciousness that he orshe is not worthy enough to choose whomever he or she wants as amate but be dictated by sets of fascist rules. 9. Inferiority and superiority complex. Feelings like beingthreatened and downgraded for some while, for others it's unfairbecause being different and divided are what they're obsessed with. 10. Causes people to say mean words while claiming not to beracist. 11. Brewing the World War III 12. Makes life not worth living and this world not livable. 13. Spouting around the deceiving, fear/hate-mongering propagandawith words such as "Love your race", "preserve" by not meaning thehuman race but his own deceitful selfish ego that is divisive andfull of hateful pride. 14. Losing of conscience, common sense, and ability to repent orseek for a betterment. Defending the indefensible, shooting backwith remarks such anti-racism is racism itself, paranoid crybabyexcuses, history denials, threats, and all stuffs of misleadingtu-quoque arguments. 15. Insincere "friendship" and "charities" for the sake of showingoff only. 16. Best of tu-quoque excuses and arguments with hope andencouragement so that there are racists in every "race", i.e."Everybody is racist too, why am I worse?" 17. Loss of individualism replaced by herd/group/zombie mentality. 18. Tension, terror, and of course atmosphere of terror andterrorism. 19. Using of science in pretentious, wrong direction and/orobsession in pseudoscience all for divide and control purpose. 20. Using freedom of speech and/or religion to spread hate, inspirepeople to turn against each other. 21. Demanding that people not feel insulted when they are shownhate against, abused, insulted, thrown bananas at, hurled stonesat, slapped, punched racially verbally and physically. They mightsay, "We were just having fun, can't you take a joke?!" 22. Making typical arguments for no. 21 such as: Calling it fearinstead of racism, or calling the victims liars. 23. Make some anthropologists on this small planet think andpostulate "Human races are evolving away from each other, areactually diverging from one another, We are getting less alike"(Henry Harpending) Which serves good only for a certain segment ofthat human "race". 24. It can make those who behave, speak, think, or act racistagainst a victim angrier when they are pointed out and called outas racists, much angrier than their victims whom they offend.Because basically they are proud bullies, and can't see anythingwrong in bullying. 25. It makes men more and more sleeker and slicker in their glibs,and so subtle in sugarcoating it, in pathetic attempt to make theirdeep seated racist psyche appear acceptable they even use God andtwist scriptures to appeal to religious people in hope as many canbe deceived. One example is this website, please check how "21stcentury" the "sweet sugar" fits in the name of God:faithandheritage com/faq/ i imagined they sing "Amazing Races howsweet segregation sounds" after that
Your question would be like asking, "Sexism or Judaism, which is more harmful and insulting?" You have a religious belief and discriminatory ideal. While they may exist tog…ether in the same person, it all depends on what a person believes their belief or ideal requires of them and how they act on it. One racist may be fine with just hating other races and feels no need to do anything about it, while someone of Islam may want others who don't believe their way dead, so they act on it. However, someone who's Muslim may be fine with others having different beliefs, while a racist may believe he needs to cleanse the earth of other races other than his own, so he acts on it. Depending on the individual and what they think will give knowledge and insight on who's more dangerous for any belief or ideal.
