Why Are People Racist?

You would think that after thousands of years, human beings would find more complex reasons to hate each other than race. Yet racism still prevails to this day. The question is… why are people racist? Is it biological or is it learned? On the second episode of Today I Learned, we speak to professor in social psychology and culture, Dr Karim Bettache on the psychology of racism.
