racism in villages

many times i have noticed that
people who are the most racist live in villages
where there aren't any foreigners

maybe because when you live in multicultural
cities, you need psychological adequation
not relied on fantasy

It comes down to individual cases.

I agree. Here on the plains of Nebraska, the peasants don't know much about other cultures, so they fear and despise other cultures.

You are correct.
I think, that it is natural to be afraid of the unknown. Villages are mostly homogeneous so that the residents are not exposed to people who are different from them. Living in large cities provides that contact and traveling is the great eye opener. The more we get to know people from other countries and backgrounds, the more understanding and tolerant we become of their different ways.
