European racism as of late (a question)
What's with all the racism in Europe? Seriously, what is with it, after centuries of racism in colonies and such, and other events such as World War 2 and the Holocaust, why would people think that it's a good idea to do things like having a senator in Italy compare the first Congolese minister to an orangutan (besides being incredibly offensive is geographically inaccurate to say the least, since orangutangs are from Indonesia, not the Congo area of Africa), or to yell slurs at futbol players for their skin color? It might be a small crowd amongst the giant populace, but you'd think that after all the years of how it goes so horribly wrong and such would have sunk in by now. But then, maybe stupidity and hatred will always exist in humanity. Why?
