Racism is always a symptom of a small mind. It is born from man's inability to raise himself from the realm of animals and consciously refuse the temptations of the instinctive impulses of our reptilian brains. The very nature of racism is a failure of humanity - a failure to see through the trickery used by mother nature to fool us into protecting ourselves. We should have, by now, each of us, ascended beyond any need or want for such atavistic, preliterate concerns. However, as sad and disappointing as it may be, so many continue to fail in their growth as spirit.
