Racism ends where race is unnoticed

“Racism ends where race is unnoticed” because people from the same race tend to form isolated groups and it is the fractionation of human that causes fear and hate. As a student in a university ethnically diverse, I often observe people from the same “race” to mingle with each other only. This encourages other ethnic groups to stereotype them as a form of insecurity because they know nothing about these people. If everyone didn’t characterize themselves as from a certain ethnicity then I think people would form groups depending on what they are passionate about. Therefore, if people didn’t notice other people’s “race”, racism wouldn’t exist.
