    People are just afraid of the unknown. It's a natural survival skill that has evolved into something bad like racism. It's inevitable that we all feel some hate towards others for arbitrary reasons, but so long as we are able to consciously counteract those feelings it's not really a problem.

    I am not geuinely racist, sexist or homophobic.

    I sometimes say things like 'ah, women!' or '****ing black wannabe', but I know deep down that it is immoral (and, more importantly,) stupid to be racist, sexist and homophobic.
