    How did discrimination start and why is it that people are uncomfotable with other races that are unlike their own?

    Just a theory: Throughout history, people have been suspicious of outsiders. Perhaps because their leaders were greedy for more power & wealth. Since they often considered their ordinary citizens cannon fodder, they sent them to war to attack their neighbors and other far off countries and towns. Since those conscripted soldiers were fighting “the enemy” for their king or emperor, I guess they came to regard all outsiders as potential enemies and spies. Just Curious

    Even in more enlightened parts of the world people still cleave to their ancient, ingrained tribal preferences. Be it race, religion, or as of late ideology and political affiliation, people are always looking for reasons to separate themselves from others. I guess they want to feel special. Our species will likely not evolve until interbreeding has made us all light brown Atheists.
