We are lazy, we shouldn’t be.

I believe that discrimination and racist attitudes derives from human nature to be lazy. Because we humans are so lazy, we do not spend the effort and time to learn about the individual but instead, discriminate people by their skin color. This attitude is wrong, because obviously an individual do not behave in a certain way or has certain traits because of their skin color and once certain notion is linked to a certain skin color, people of those skin color will start associating with that notion. Once enough correlation has been made, attitudes, or racism, toward certain skin colors will also be made. Neither discrimination nor racism is acceptable.
