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 then 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.
