As far as on how "White Supremacy" started; I don't think it is an sole US problem.

All of it already started by the Catholic church during the "crusader" time ; murder everyone who's not catholic or "white". Plenty of examples: Murder all the Inca's, Aztecs etc. and convert them of what is left; that is why S. America speaks Spanish and is predominantly Catholic. Here in N. America "all the unwanted religions" in Europe were sent here. Mostly "white religious" people, like Mormons etc.; the same happened; murdering all the Indians stole their land as well pushed Christian religion. Indians who were left were not good workers for the fields; thus import slaves and go bravely to church and murder slaves, if they objected to their treatment. In the Netherlands they have the Spanish Santa Klaus (with X-Mas) with "black" servants (slaves) as was custom in Europe in those days; which means the Spanish (Later French) Catholic church is really the culprit and cause of "White Supremacy". Religion plays an big role in our present dilemma. Even our present President as well Pence hates everything which is not white or "Christian".

That is how it started even at 1000 AD.

In the days of slavery here in the USA, in order to justify the keeping of African people in bondage , like we did and still do,farm animals , they taught their children that Africans were not human. We even stipulated in our constitution that they are 3\5 human.
Then , the KKK used the same technique to justify their own belief that whites are superior. And to justify their behaviour concerning African Americans .
So many people grew up being taught and believing that African Americans are not human.its ingrained in their family structure. And part of their familial identification.
It is a crime against humanity when this occurs . And it will be many generations before it dies , but it will one day.

Schmidt, like I said in my main writing; most of it (nowadays) is driven by culture and religion.
Especially here in the US the first settlers were dominant "white" as well often of an religious sext which was no longer accepted in Europe or if from France or Spain as Catholic. Due to our immigration influx over the last century, these groups of people are loosing their dominance, which leads to our present situation. They feel cornered. Since most "white" created religions originated in Europe and white people stuck to those as well got more fanatic because of the "herd" mentality which they needed to feel protected from the "immoral's" who flooded this country, it is purely an self preservation drive; nothing else.

Dutch -- I am not suggesting in anyway that racism is an inherited trait. But as humans have evolved from our hunter gatherer days, certain traits became more dominant in some individuals through natural selection. The emotion of fear, for example, is much stronger in some individuals than others. Is it fear of the after life that makes so many individuals succumb to religious doctrine?

For mankind's survival certain physical and biological traits including intelligence evolved. The fact that we had "hate" long before biblical times and that genocide is nothing new in today's worldly conflicts, suggest to me that some people are more susceptible to "fear of the other" than others. In modern civilized cultures we have learned to be tolerant of each other and have passed laws to protect people's rights.

When we were born, we did not hate and we were not racists. Those traits were indeed learned, but some people learned more easily than others.

Schmidt, I don't think it has anything to do with DNA, but more or less the culture. Like Hitler promoted the white aerian race. Somehow Pence wants the same. Europe learned their lesson; we have not. The US Catholics are in that respect as fanatic as under Hitler. Like I said religious indoctrination controls such, especially if they are allowed to meddle in politics, which Trump and Pence changed from the Obama standpoint.

And the Neanderthal reference, Why am I a Neanderthal? . genographic.nationalgeographic.com/nean.../

Interesting topic Dutch. Society today largely opposes racism in its many forms, but we also have to acknowledge that we have extremists who fear "the other". If we were to go even much further back in history, we would find many examples of fear of the other in the bible where outright genocidal actions against other ethnic groups were a part of their everyday society. But the bible contradicts itself with many other references that oppose such actions. Different authors at different times with different views. It's why we have so many different denominations of Christianity.
However, we could go even further back in time and speculate why we have traces of Neanderthal DNA in our systems. Did some early humans accept and interbreed with the Neanderthals while others feared them so much that they wiped them out in genocidal actions? Just some far out critical thinking about the origins of our diversity and the way we react to our DNA driven emotions.
