If I believe it may come from an alliance with the United States and England, and others don't, then enlighten me as to what it is based from.  Is it fear?  Fear of what?  Change?  

Read the study I posted where people were able to get some in the experiment to mistreat the blue-eyed people and value/treat kindly brown-eyed ones.  Society can easily get people to discriminate/hate based on any characteristic, via socialization.

Okay, I will.  But, just from you speaking about the study, it sounds like it would have used "nazi" tactics and that's a little scary for me to go there.  Can you post the link again if possible?  tia

Experiments in the Social Sciences don't generally use "Nazi" techniques...lol.  I mean Scientists have indeed done some creepy things through the years to people, but it's not common.

By the way, just because you’re a POC doesn’t mean you can’t be anti-black. And, this isn’t Dead By Daylight, or FN, or LoL, or what have you. GG my left buttcheek lol.
