Why do people put so much emphasis on race?
Not only when being racist, and using racial slurs against other races... but also racial "pride". We acknowledge it as a country (USA) too. Don't you think that is just as bad as racism? It seems excessive and pointless; what does it matter what your race is and why should you have to take pride in it? Why can't people just acknowledge what they are, and move on with their lives?

There's been a lot of social psychological research into this. To summarise: people naturally categorise the social world into different groups of people, to make processing the world easier. They then identify in-groups, groups they belong to, as well as out-groups. Finally, in order to increase self-esteem and make... More

Because race matters in America. Americans identify themselves by their racial affiliation. Americans belong to a race before anything else. This is a fact of the American life. People take pride in what define them first and foremost. In America, it is the racial classification.
