And white people are rich people.

And asians are likely to be called yellow...

Seriously, if you consider valid any such things, keep them to yourself. I do for a few things... But I will say I'm against certain cultures as I perceive them, far moreso than I worry about color.

Aren't 100% of the people in Al Qaeda Muslim?

Good idea, let's start with the Religious Right.

I think the more interesting set of conclusions to come from this is the idea that racism is NOT a learned behavior, but a natural instict we have built in to protect us from rival tribes and even other human species. It makes a certain amount of sense, especially the heightened form of this reflex in Europeans. Europeans, of all the populations of homo Sapiens, were the last to out-compete the other local human species (neandetals) and so we have a more skeptical eye towards brow and nose shape and other charactaristics we find "scary."

I remember when I was quite small (4-6, I'd say) I used to be scared of Black People... not because of anything I learned from my parents but simply because I they were unlike anyone in my family, who were all I knew.

I doubt it could be inborn like that, how long have humans been racially differentiated enough for that to make sense? Not in evolutionary time, I'm sure.

Anthropologists (sorry, tonight OED is not with me, spelling?) do pretty much agree with Plaguebearer's main thought: the process of us-them and stereotyping is inborn. Racism, per se, is not necessarily so; more likely, it is a perceived reason/excuse for this inborn behaviour - rationalising, if you will. But close enough. Then again, as you said, it's not inborn like that - it very much likely runs deeper than beating neanderthals on head with bigger rocks.

No major evolutionary change is required here, certainly no more than a major change is skin pigment levels to occur; all it takes is a few kids who run at the sight of a "different" person to survive, and a few others who stop to say "hello" to them to die. It's not an overwhelming instict like our fear of darkness (which we outgrow) but there seems to me to be a reasonable basis for the theory.

If you haven't noticed, there also seems to be an anti US sentiment in the US.
