My alma mater...a lot of crazies there, but I was a STEM major, so I largely avoided them.

All things are racist, that’s the liberal thinking.

Even if rats are/were rats born racists, it's still dangerous to project that onto humans. Human nature is not synonomous with animal nature. Humans have human nature. Rats have rat nature. And so on and so forth.

Humans unique basket of traits put a considerable, if finite, distance between our nature and other animals' natures. We see the limitations of emotive impulses, moving on to highly disciplined and elaborate forms thought (philosophy, science, etc). IN fact that's how we moved from building spears to space telescopes able to spot extrasolar planets hundreds of light-years away. That's also how we moved from mere "mob justice" to elaborate laws and court systems.

Rats being racist (I assume against their own kind), if true, is interesting. But it says nothing about how people ought to behave toward one another.

Let’s be honest, every time libs mention racist, the rest of the country laugh their asses off and realize how dumb they sound.

They don't call it "Berserkley" for no reason.

To answer the question without reading the article, no. I don't believe rats or any other living beings are born racist. It's a learned behavior passed down by parents so when you see a young person behaving that way, look to his mother and father. One or both are racist and it's shameful.

A rat probably doesn't give a donkey's rear on whether or not a rat can be racist.
