Some beliefs used as an excuse include "the [holy book] says so" (seen in various texts, depending on interpretation), "they're a different colour skin so they must be of the devil" (more of an ignorance than a belief), "my race/colour/religion is the only real one so I should eliminate the other fake ones" (e.g. Aryanism), and "God/an angel told me in my dreams that they should be oppressed" (often seen in cults).
