    “[God] made out of one man every nation of men to dwell on the entire surface of the earth.”—Acts 17:26.

    God created two humans, Adam and Eve, and he said to them: “Be fruitful and become many, fill the earth and subdue it.” (Genesis 1:28)  Adam and Eve came to be the father and mother of all humankind. Later, when a flood wiped out most of the earth’s population, four couples survived Noah and his wife along with their three sons and their wives. The Bible teaches that all of us descended from Noah’s sons. Genesis 9:18, 19.

    Acts 10:34, 35 states: “God is not partial, but in every nation the man who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him.” For this reason, nobody can rightly consider one race to be superior to another.

    Jesus set the standard for Christians when he said to his disciples: “All of you are brothers.” (Matthew 23:8) He prayed that his followers be united and be “perfected into one,” not divided or segregated.  1 Corinthians 1:10.

    Will there ever be an end to racism?

    In the final part of the days,

    The mountain of the house of Jehovah

    Will become firmly established above the top of the mountains,

    And it will be raised up above the hills,

    And to it all the nations will stream.

    Jesus said: “Wisdom is proved righteous by its works.” (Matthew 11:19) Although the world has made much progress in technology, it has not been able to solve the major problems that prevent us from being happy, such as war, racism, and crime. In addition, the world views sexual immorality as acceptable. But many people admit that this destroys families, causes health problems, and has other bad consequences. What about Jehovah’s advice? Christians who have accepted Jehovah’s viewpoint have happier families, are healthier, and have peaceful relationships with their brothers and sisters around the world. (Isaiah 2:4; Acts 10:34, 35; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11) This clearly proves that Jehovah’s thinking is superior to the world’s.

    The idea of human "races" didn't exist before modern times, not before the 1500s. So no ancient writer mentions "racism".

    James 2:8 KJV — If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well.

    Luke 6:31 KJV — And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.

    1 John 4:20 — If a man say, I love God, and hateth another, he is a liar: for he that loveth not others whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

  • Acts 10:34 says that God is not partial, but in every nation, the man who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him. A Christian should not be racist but view every person as a potential disciple of Jesus Christ and a brother or sister.

    Racism is ridiculous. We are all decendents of Adam so we are all family. If you are a racist you reject your own family.

    It says that all humans are beloved children of God, and are called to treat one another as brothers and sisters, with love and respect.

    Since God created us all, why would He speak against us?  The Bible mentions slavery, but this is slavery of whites and blacks, not just blacks.  Slaves were those who lost the war when tribes fought against each other.  God says that we are all "fearfully and wonderfully made" and He loves us all.
