What is their major malfunction?
I wouldn't call it a "malfunction." It's mostly just uneducated people who look at other cultures or skin colors as a threat, especially if they are unfamiliar with the other group and have had a bad experience with even just one person.
That's a good question. Let's start with The Obama. Why is he racist?
Because, anyone who calls their "white grandmother" a "typical white person" is about as racist as you can get.
Most often displaced frustration/anger. They're not getting laid enough or they're out of work so they find somebody unlike themselves in a visible way to hate.
Also ethnocentrism can cause one to look down upon other races just like nationalism can cause one to look down on other nations.

Because they have tiny tally-wackers.
Because they are too dumb to know any better. Would you believe there are some people who believe certain groups should be given preferential treatment based on the color their skin? I know it sounds crazy, but it happens all the time. Take for instance the Democratic Party. They believe in Affirmative Action which gives certain people preferential treatment based on the color of their skin. That's tantamount to State-sanctioned racism, and yet somehow they believe that's okay. Crazy.
Some of them even have their own Congressional Caucus, their own national association for their advancement, united college funds, beauty contests, history month etc...etc...etc
and then there are those who push "diversity" on others while not allowing it in their own little far away land while practicing apartheid and genocide against people because of their race.
I guess certain groups just feel that they are superior to everyone else. It must be okay though ...... nobody ever seems to protest.
I don`t know ...... why ARE they racist???
There are a bunch of reason's I would gather ...
They could have been raised that way. They might have been victimized by someone of a certain race. They could see another racial group as competition for work/opportunity. They might believe everything they see on TV.
I think LiveUninhibitied made a good point:
I think a lot of us are guilty of this line of thinking in one form or another.
