It depends on the people themselves. if one day they realize that we do not need to be racist towards other people, it will be gone soon enough
Samuel Young: I believe racism will always exist. There is virutally no way to get rid of it. The only way to get rid of it, in my opinion, is to simply accept it. Acknolwedge others for their strengths and weaknesses and respect them regardless of skin color. Praise their culture and try to embrace it. Once you do that, you will be come a racist to some degree, but in a good way. Somebody who apprieciates another's culture and ethnicity and respects it to the highest degree. Culture and race is extremely important, it should not be something to be used to categorize others, but rather bring people together.
Unfortunately it will never truly go away.You just have to come to grips with this fact and take it all in stride. Luckily, racism can be reduced at the very least by treating others with respect regardless of nationality and skin color. Also if you are a fan of telling racist jokes you can choose to not do so to reduce racist comments as well.
No, I think itself is a part of the human evolution. The idea will always exist however we can take steps to prevent false baring for future generation.-Tu Nguyen
I think racism will always be here, no matter how little or how much there will be. It is the same as judgement of other people, even if it doesnt have to do with their race necessarily. It can be of their appearance, how they dress, or act, etc.
I doubt that racism will ever truly go away. I just don't think humans are all that altruistic.
