Supongo que sí. La mejor manera para que dejen de serlo es que conozcan a personas de otros lugares y países, de este modo comprenderán que todos sus prejuicios eran mentira. De todos modos, es más difícil, la mente de los adultos suele ser más cerrada y a veces no atienden a razones. A la gente le suele costar mucho cambiar un pensamiento que han tenido toda la vida, y que les ha sido inculcado desde pequeños.

Si hay el racismo hay un motivo. Por ejemplo: En Brasil hay el prejuicio que los negros son bandidos porque la mayoría de los negros son pobres y la mayoría de los bandidos son pobres. Si queremos erradicar el racismo aquí, los negros tienen que ser ricos, porque así nadie más va a pensar eso. Y mismo si los negros fuesen ricos, alguien sería pobre y el racismo terminaría en otro grupo social. O sea, no es posible erradicar el racismo, así como no es posible erradicar la desigualdad.

If there were no adults, we could eradicate it.

I'm always hopeful things can be done, but I'm realistic. Before we ask government and the media to do anything, we have to look at ourselves. I see where Englishgeek is coming from.

I'm not afraid of those that are outwardly racist(I've met some nice!).  I'm afraid of the secret ones in positions of influence and power.

No. It can't be eradicated. I think the most people are racists to some degree. They just don't want to admit it.

The first step would be having adults try to actually look at a person as a person. We have more in common than we have different, yet people seem to believe that they are better than another. Children see other children as just that, another child that they can play with. We see other races as better or worse than ourselves.

We put a great deal of stock in the media, and assume that the journalist takes a neutral stand on issues, but that has never been true. We know logically that what we are being told cannot be true, yet we believe it without question. We enjoy making fun of another race or culture because we feel it isn't harmless, yet we become angry when it happens to us. Why? 

If you want to rid adults from racism, get rid of the media or at least teach the public that it is only entertainment that lacks truth and neutrality.
