Why is it so hard for people to just see the 'Person', rather than obsess over their colour, creed or religion?

Media, media... and cultural brainwashing. I'm about to read a book called 'The miseducation of the negro.' One of the chapters exams why black and beautiful remains a contradiction. Who thinks of this? People who are lighter in skin color have generally been seen as thinking they are more superior to those who are darker. Where does THIS come from? Quite frankly, I think years of accepting a certain thought results in the engrainment of lies. It is up to individuals to do their research and decide whether truth or holding onto a convenient lie is more meaningful to them...1
I don't get it either. Sometimes I think it's racism thing or a weird fetishization, but either way it's sad. Like there are a ton of great people of every kind out there why make yourself miss out?0
Because it's easier to judge them based on these things. For some people these things are really important.
It's sad, but that's how things work.
But I have to say that the world would be a better place if things were not this way.0

People aren't able to see past people's imperfections (whomever is perceiving whomever.) This causes rifts in opinions and what you term 'obsessions.'0
What Guys Said 1
Many people do see past that... but there are many that don't. Why? Because often they are not deep enough thinkers to take a breath and look. That takes work and many people are lazy. They prefer to just 'see' rather than 'look.' It is a pity.1
