    Just because something is common does not mean that it is not wrong. Violence is common but most people agree it is wrong.

    Is this like the reverse of the logic that says homosexuality is wrong because it's not normal?

    You love calling things/people stupid don't you? Quite funny since you have such difficulty composing a couple of sentences without grammatical mistakes.

    Funny how this is the first post of yours I've seen which is entirely grammatically correct.

    Everyone is racist, they'll hate to admit it but everyone has those thoughts. Most of us have been conditioned not to express them however which is why it's not common if you've been integrated into other races during your upbringing.

    It is part of human nature unfortunately, even those that claim not to be racist will be sub-consciously racist. People who claim not to discriminate based on race would still 'linger' over certain ethnicities in reaction tests. However even this sub-conscious racial discrimination disappears completely when people are put in a task involving a diverse team against another diverse team, they begin to have lasting discrimination against other 'teams' instead. I, unfortunate as it may seen, believe (and this is my opinion) that something as simple as facial structure and skin pigmentation is enough to develop a 'them' and 'us' attitude to even the tiniest degree, and outside of the context of say, team against team, and instead in the more drab and usual context of everyday life, it is this basic discrimination that wins over. I would not say 100% that this is a product of human evolution, and probably has a cultural basis, there may be certain conditions that do not allow for discrimination based on physical features at all even in every day life, but these conditions unfortunately are not found in the majority of modern day cultures, even outside of the West where racism is not 'called out on', that is not to say that these cultures do not exist.
