Default Who is the most hated race, religion, or ethnicity?

I often wondered if black people, in particular, are the most hated, discriminated against, or stereotyped race in the entire world. It seems that when people think of the bottom of the social scale they think of blacks (negroids). It seems like this not only about the US, but blacks are seen as inferior in almost every part of the world. Keep in mind that it doesn't mean that others aren't hated or discriminated against like Amerindians in the US or Latin American, and Jews as well. Why are blacks treated so differently when it comes to social status whileas there are people of all races and colors who do bad things and occupy the lowest rungs of society. Or is it that negroids are the most misunderstood? Who is the most hated race, religion, or ethnicity in your particular country, or at least in the world? Does history have anything to do with it?

traditionally Jews and Gypsies in the west, although latino commies, chinese and muslims are pushing hard. blacks have neverric been really hated in Europe , unlike in America, but there's always been the stereotype that they are still in the tribal stage and are unable to evolve.

I don't know really who are the most hated and discriminated in Asia or Africa

Nice way of asking your oppressors why are you oppressed.

Historically? Jews and Gypsies take the cake. As of today? Jews and Muslims from a universal perspective i suspect.

Black people are not particularly hated in France, rather North Africans and Gypsies. Blacks arouse indifference or some sympathy, in general.

Yeah nobody really makes a huge deal about blacks in Europe, Africa is seen as Inferior to Europe in many ways but that's hardly based on racism rather than solid facts (economy, quality of life, historical empires/achievements etc) but I do often laugh at American skinheads/neo-nazi's and blacks who put so much emphasis on black vs white when back in Europe it was Jews/gypsies etc being killed by the millions with barely a black in sight. America's racial hangups do not = the worlds. Europeans have always been far more about their specific nation and culture than some pan European us versus the blacks, Asians and Arabs mentality that Americans seem to possess due to their lack of identity.

The hatred for Black people in Europe never reached the hysteria occuring in the Americas but one should not underestimate that phenomenon. What we perceive as an indifference towards Black people was just the logical consequences of the absence of Black people from Europe prior to the 18th century.

The generation that got massively in contact with Black people (after WW1) developed strong prejudices against them. In a way, these prejudices were more cruel than prejudices against other "Caucasian" communities. The figure of the "Jew" was not a revered one but in many ways, antisemitism recognized the cultural and intellectual influence of European Jews, the Jews were equal in "intelligence" and that's pretty much why they were deemed to be dangerous. The figure of the "Black man" was just animalized and sexualized. My own grandmothers do show a strong - and somehow worringly "natural" - antipathy towards Black people. A good friend of mine dated a Guinean woman, his grandmother was horrified and told him that it would have been better for him to date an Arab woman. In front of me, she developed her physical horror of Black people. It might be shocking for many people on this board but from a pure sociological point of view it was rather interesting.

Well, I've heard pretty "basic" talks from my grandparents on the physical differences between Blacks and Whites, but nothing that could be close to hatred. The indifference of my grandmother for Blacks is so huge that she has noticed the presence of the Turks/Kurds and Roma in Bordeaux but not that of Sub-Saharans, as if they are "part of the landscape".

The mystery is the real opinion of "ethnic French" youth on Black people : it's pretty sure that many of them dislike North Africans (current pupils don't hide their negative thoughts about them), but not as clear for Blacks. Many young White women flirt with Blacks, it's even impressive in French cities.

The image of Black people amongst younger generations is rather positive. That's a byproduct of the greatness of Black-American culture. A whole generation was born watching NBA basketball matches and listening to rap music. Amongst the 'lower classes', racism seems to have disappeared contrary to what French "patriots" believe. The amount of mixed-blood babies in the streets of our big metropolis is astonishing. One should not underestimate the sexualized image of Black people amongst the youth : with women being more free and in search for genuine pleasure like men used to do, such stereotypes are very important.

My parents and uncles/aunts being teachers, I can detect the big sociological changes affecting France just by having a look at their pupils' list. In my home Béarn, I've noticed three trends : the first one is the disappearance of autochtonous people (about 5% of surnames, we're now Amerindians), the second one is the emergence of an Arab-descended bourgeoisie (generally speaking, they're Moroccan), the third one is the evaporation of racism amongst lower classes with the constitution of a mixed France (that new society can be exciting but it's also the France of sordid suburban areas).
