If so how?

yes they can be racist because they still have ears and they can dislike a certain race, some people are taught to be racist and stick with it. When I was working in nursing there was patient and she was black and dementia and she was racist, she was so racist she wouldnt drink white milk.

I agree about the elderly black lady that wouldn't drink white milk. That is too funny. As for blind people being racist...Of course anyone can be racist. You don't have to have eyes to form opinions about a group of people. We are taught to hate, we're not born that way. If I heard someone saying something bad about a group over and over I would probably form an opinion based on what I was taught.

sure why not! Just because they don't see doesnt mean they can't pass judgement

I agree - I've even met a racist child! She was 11, I was subbing for a Middle School Literature class. It happened to be Anne Frank, this child voiced to the entire class that Jews deserved the Holocaust! I was only 20 didn't know how to handle the situation so I sent her to the principals office.
