as to point #1 we also have much more diversity than most nations. There's very little racism in Japan because there's basically one race.
as to point #2 if you don't let a certain race into your business or move into your neigborhood, it is racism. Doesn't matter what your reasoning in.
as to point #3 , that is complete bullshit. I admit a lot of people treat people that look and act like them better, but those people are prejudiced, if not racist.
1 And there is basically one race because there is not so subtle prejudiced against outsiders.
2 What if a bank makes a lending rule that impacts blacks more than whites, but is based purely on economics?
3 It is instinct. You can always treat people any way you want. When you are walking down a street and see people that look like you it isnt as likely you will be scared as people that dont look and act like you.
