I do not see the two as being a like.
Homosexuality is genetic. It is natural. However our career choices seem to be mostly fueled from our enviroment and experiances, same for racism.
Can you prove without a shadow of a doubt that a person who is racist wasn't born that way or it was genetic?
I don't think they are. It's a choice party peoples. There is nothing wrong with it either.
Someone wants to be gay, I have zero problem with them. They can live the life they want.
My point is if your logic is someone being gay is genetic, that same logic could be applied to racism.
Neither can be proved. Even the medical community is still divided on genetics and gay.
To say it's genetic is a convient cover. Lets not even use racism. How bout just hate? A person who is hateful or hates others regardless of color or what have you.
They come to you and say my doc told me I was born this way and there is nothing I can do about it.
And I totally agree with rodeo about not knowing what is inside each persons head. That is actually where I'm getting at.
Blanket studies and comments for masses of people are impossible. I completely prefer to focus on the individiual and not lump them in with others so it fits our own biases or rationalizations.
