Is racism human nature?

Yes

No

I think to a certain extent all humans have in their nature the tendency to separate people into "us and them," and display a herd mentality. Sometimes these tendencies manifest themselves distastefully in the form of racism. So I think it's fair to say racism is a part of human nature. That doesn't mean it shouldn't be suppressed on an individual level and ridiculed as a general phenomenon. Violence is also a part of human nature; arguably my gut instinct when presented with conflict is to swing at the other guy, but i suppress that instinct or urge regularly in favor of rational discourse. Similarly, it might be in your nature to irrationally fear, hate, or distrust what could be perceived as members of a different tribe or herd, but you should also try to quell that instinct because you recognize it as intrinsically irrational. Human nature is littered with these kind of irrational emotional inconveniences, like jealousy, and we should try to be better than the primitive, tribal instincts that drive such emotions.

Classifying people by race is natural, because human beings organize information. Basing your interactions with people on their race is not natural.

Treating people differently than one another because of the way they look is unnatural? Really? Please, explain that one to me.

its very unfortunate but Ive seen enough in my life time to conclude that at a base level we all conscious or subconscious we all have a part of us that separates us from those we see as a "bad" person. we can see this easily in our monetary system if your are rich you aren't going to live in a poor area no your going to get a nice place because you can.

Yes it human nature, and it is present no matter race one might be. This will eventually cause the fall of the U.S. because the globalization and multiculturalism will not mesh forever and will bring it to its knees from the inside. This happened with a combination of spreading itself out to thinly with the Roman Empire. Once a country/empire does not have a common and dominate culture it will divide against itself and fall. Natural segregation is seen through out time, and its my personal belief that it will continue to happen, because human beings are "naturally racist", meaning our instinct is to look out for our own kind, and kind in this instance is in its most basic meaning as race.

Side: Yes

Man tends to be over-competitive to the point of utilizing every array of disposal to the destruction of others. Such that foolishly making a big deal of skin color. Man also tends to be prideful and thinks of himself as someone of different state to others unlike him. Therefore it resides in our human nature and unknowingly depended on it as well for survival. Such may also be termed as being selective in groups. If one joins people whom he thinks are weak, then his morale will go down. If he resides in whom he thinks is strong, his morale goes up. Man uses racism in anyway we look at it.

Racism is a human choice not a nature . Racist are idiots and ignorant people because they don't accept different cultures for the reason of their color , religion or physical features , they think themselves superior than the others but you can denied these ideas and be tolerant with everyone so it's a matter of will and choice . All in all , it's difficult to be good with everyone and easy to act bad with people or do bad things

"All in all , it's difficult to be good with everyone and easy to act bad with people or do bad things" its easy to act bad because of our basic programming. Tolerance- The capacity for or the practice of recognizing and respecting the beliefs or practices of others. the fact we must "practice" tolerance alone proves we aren't perfect so we must over come our more basic thoughts. i wish it wasn't built in I'm definitely not raciest because i choose not to be as you said but i feel that when it comes down to it unfortunately racism is human nature

Racism is not human nature. That is, categorically judging the worth, mental, and physical ability of a person based on their physical appearance. Distinguishing between races is natural because humans process and organize information into classifications and definitions.
