Some of it has to do with fear. Some people are afraid of what or who they don't understand and or someone different from them.

when i was little i didnt know that there were different races. when i looked at someone i didnt see a skin color i saw a person. and i think thats the way it should be your whole life but unfortunetly we are taught race and some people dont understand that we are all human and so they become racist.

When humans used to have tribes, you'd only want the people in your tribe near you, because they'd have less of a chance of attacking you. This knowledge was embedded in our brains, causing some people to immediately distrust those who look different from them. However, this is no excuse, as we don't have tribes, we have more technology and knowledge, and if anyone's attacks you, you can sue them.

There are many different reasons. My guess is because they are afraid or angry at something so instead of finding a logical solution, they scapegoat a group of people (like a particular race). The term scape goat comes from biblical times when people would cast all their sins onto a goat and have it run into the forrest, then they were no longer responsible for their actions. Certain racists are doing the same but with PoC instead of goats. Why? Because it's easier just to blame See More▼ someone else.
