WHY be racist, casteist and genderist if we are made up of same DNA genetic code ?

WHY be racist, casteist and genderist if we all are same human being who share 99.9 % of the same gene code and we are all made of the same type of energy.
 
I would say it is all due to our own ignorance we became racist, casteist and genderist because we have been taught to hate human beings who do not hold similar religious ideoloigcal belief, societal norms, cultural practices, traditions, races and so forth. I realized that almost all hatred has learned and socially conditioned from parents, society, priests, rulers and government from early childhood.

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
― Nelson Mandela

"Racism is taught in our society, it is not automatic. It is learned behavior toward persons with dissimilar physical characteristics."
- Alex Haley (1921-1992), an American writer 

Anyway, talking about DNA John P. Hussman Institute for Human Genomics, University of Miami scientists say that human DNA is the genetic code that acts as our body’s cookbook of recipes to tell it how to grow and develop.

Our genetic code is very much the same, even among people who are not related. We share 99.9% of our DNA with each other!

Only 0.1% of our DNA is different from each other. However, it is this very small amount of difference that makes us unique. This means that we all share most of the information written in our cookbooks, but there are some variations in the recipes. Every cell of the human body (we have trillions of cells) contains our complete DNA genetic code. While DNA is very small, it contains a huge amount of information!

  1. I like this line "we have been taught to hate human beings who do not hold similar religious ideoloigcal belief, societal norms, cultural practices, traditions, races and so forth. "
