    okay seriously what is up with all these rants against other race use dumb stereotypes this just pisses me off badly. I don't get why racism exist if probably no one is a full breed we all have different kinds of blood in us were all mixed.

    Because of Apple. Little known fact, there was no such thing as racism before Apple was formed.

    Seriously though... Yeah, I don't think GBAtemp is the place for a nuanced, serious discussion on racial relations over the course of human history. You're thinking of /pol/.

    Why does the PC race constantly put down the console race? It's not right...

    Race is a lie, especially in the anthropological sense.

    Go to a midwest or southern walmart and you will experience low class pale skinned people utilizing their ebt cards as well.

    Well, I personally hate racism or racialism. I don't like it because it classifies people by their appearance and that's a very useless classification in my opinion.

    However, there are particular people that behave in a similar and negative way, which is the reason stereotypes exists; so in some cases, it's actually people's behaviour what encourages the existence of these stereotypes.

    Ask any of said "EBT card" users, though, and they'd assure you it's the other way around. Racism is the CAUSE.

    People like to feel more proud of themselves, just some choose to feel better by looking down more on others, especially others of a different race or ethnicity. Hell, People even tend to look down on people based on something like nationality.

    Yup, that's another reason; people making communities (and rules) based on their appearance or "race"

    Part of it's probably inherited; children see their racist parents, children become racist (with the exception of the children who have good friends of another race).
    Beyond that, I don't know. No one I know is a racist (unless they just haven't told me or just haven't acted that way in front of me).

    hating because of race and hating because of nationality probably have the same origins ... as long ago when they didn't have such good transportation technology as we do today, it was more true that nationality=race. Therefore racism=patriotism=good became a common misconception.
