Why are men more racist and xenophobic than women ?

Men don’t seem to accept other races, ethnic backgrounds and religions as much as women. Every race, ethnicity and religion that’s different from theirs gets discriminated. Women seem more open and accepting, they discriminate less. Why is that?

    Testosterone makes a man protective, respect towards their ethnicity and warrior while estrogen makes a woman nice, empathetic and disloyal towards her ethnic group.

    Women are socialized to be nicer and put everyone ahead of themselves. They might be racist but they're less likely to say it out loud or act on it.

    Your personal impression MAY be true, even if it's just based on your anti-male bigotry.  IF it is true, it's because men tend to do more of EVERYTHING. More ANTI-bigotry, also. The usual male/female ratio on the Left is at LEAST 3 to 1, and often even higher.

    And where would the FEMALE Nazi activists I recently ran into at a demonstration fit into your wooden little schema? (For public relations reasons, I stepped back while the female comrades dealt with them, but I would have no ethical or political problem with wiping them out myself)

    Racism is a form of tribalism. The mentality of racism is that "these strangers are not part of my tribe and therefore a possible threat to me.” Strangers could attack you, invade your territory, and steal the tribe's resources. This was the thought process of our prehistoric ancestors. From an evolutionary standpoint, men were usually the protectors and attackers of the group. They're a lot more territorial over the opposite sex as well. Biologically speaking, a man needs to ensure his seed impregnates the woman so that his genes get passed down to the next generation. As a male, the last thing you want is for another man to impregnate the woman you claimed, especially not a male from outside the tribe that you don't trust or have any kinship with. Globalization has forced us to challenge our primitive instincts to attack or avoid people that are not familiar to us.

    Women are more accepting because they have no concept of order and security. Throw a few babies in their face and they will support unlimited immigration. 

    The best way to grow the state is to give women political power. Why? Because then every group can demand special treatment and due to the influence of women in politics all those groups will get what they want. Well, unless that group is men, which in that case means they get ignored in favor of women. 

    When women have political power you also have pretty much unlimited permission to act on whatever you want as long as you have some sad story or a story about what might happen at some point if you don't act.

    It seems to me that either gender can be open and accepting. It all depends on how they are raised.

    it's the exact opposite (ask any Black Woman).  Blacks, Women, and Libs are the most racist groups alive. nobody really notices because we all paint "the other" as the more racist one without accrediting more influence to how people behave than what they say.

      Women are attracted to security, it's instinctual. Unlike other races of women, black women typically don't reap any benefits of sexual reproduction. The males of their group don't provide resources or protection, which is what females need in order to feel secure during pregnancy.
