Why are people so freaking racists?

I SIMPLY DO NOT UNDERSTAND RACISM WHATSOEVER!!!!!!! WHY HATE SOMEONE MERELY BECAUSE THEIR SKIN IS ANOTHER COLOR, IT'S LIKE CHILDREN FIGHTING OVER CRAYONS. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE ENLIGHTEN ME? AND FOR THE RACISTS OUT THERE, PLEASE SEE ADDITIONAL COMMENTS!

BY THE WAY, THAT'S JUST THE BLACK INVENTIONS & INVENTORS, STAY TUNED TO SEE WHAT THE HISPANICS HAVE DONE FOR YOU DUMMIES & WHAT YOU WILL NO LONGER PARTAKE IN!

Update 5:

Sidenote: I LOVE ALL PEOPLE: WHITE, BLACK, YELLOW, ORANGE, BLUE, GREEN, RED, ETC. Also, I am not denying that some Blacks and Hispanics are racist. But, no other race has been so systematically oppressed and has such a bloody history due to racial discrimination as African Americans in America. And for those who think that racism is not an issue anymore, please read some of these racist remarks on Yahoo Answers! They are incredible. Thus, "the race card" whatever the heck that is, cannot be so-called "played" when in fact, racism is evident, prevalent and oozing from every crevice of the internet! No one says, "Stop playing the race-card to Jewish people who are abhorred by Hitler's reign" and yet, this is the #1 reply to African Americans who were lynched, enslaved and beaten to death during the days of American slavery. The reason for this discrepancy is: Jews are Usually White. So, people sympathize with them more than Blacks.

Update 6:

Henry Samson invented the Gamma-Electric Cell, which pioneered the invention of the modern cell phone. Were it not for his contribution, electric cellular activity would have been a mute point honey. In the 19th century Elisha Graves Otis introduced power elevators with safety brakes. Elevators then were powered by steam, which was a major breakthrough from the traditional manual operation. However, they were deemed unsafe due to cables that were susceptible to breakage. So Otis introduced something better: vertical lifts with brakes. Today, Elisha Graves Otis is acknowledged as the man who invented the elevator. Due to his innovations to make them fit for human use he is the first elevator inventor.

It is because of Otis that people can now be carried up skyscrapers having a hundred floors or more in a safe manner. Before this, high rise buildings had the problem of how people could get to the upper floors without using the stairs. Frederick McKinley Jones invented the first automati

    I agree.

    Racism is almost intertwined in the fabric of human nature itself. It won't stop until we cease to exist.

    Judge someone truthfully on how they act and not just their skin color. Stereotypes and generalizations are what fuel racism.

    I am not a racist..but can say that many races who hate whites are just as bad as the whites

    it works both ways except when you are white..for some reason other races THINK we all hate them

    Maybe if they would lighten up on the race card there wouldn't be so much "racism"

    I have had a tough time being white and having blacks call me honky...honky *itch,whitie,crackers,peckawood among other nasty names...they didn't even know me & I never said a bad word to them

    I don't hate their whole race because of them...

    WHY DO YOU HAVE TO TALK LIKE THIS?

    Do we care what black people have invented? you might as well post what people from each country have invented.

    Also:

    Guitar - Not invented by Black people. Quite obvious.

    Traffic light - J.P Knight - ENGLISH

    Horse shoe - "though there is speculation that the Gauls were the first to nail on metal horseshoes" Wikipedia

    And many more....
