Define "educated."

I would hope not many valedictorians attend KKK meetings.

The modern science of evolutionary psychology suggests that racism is hard wired in humans. Left to their own initiative, children naturally exclude and torment those who are different and they commonly use skin color and genetic differences in facial features as a basis of discrimination. They have to be explicitly taught otherwise.


Carl Sagan wrote an excellent book on the subject.
