    If you were a sociopath you really wouldn't care about race. You may use race as a tool to get something you want but that's a different concept.

    No one is "born to be" a racist any more than people are "born to be" Presbyterian.  Those are BOTH things that you are taught, AFTER you're old enough to talk and listen.  They are both BELIEFS, not disorders. 

    It doesn't matter if you are a sociopath or not - that makes no difference.  There ARE some racists who are sociopaths, but nearly all racists in actuality are NOT sociopaths - they are just normal human beings without any major personality disorders.  There are also many sociopaths who are NOT racists. 

    So there's really no link between the disorder and the belief.

    Good question, tho.

    They will have a disdain for a certain demographic but it's not all the time towards a race. Their mind is certainly accomodating to racism.

      They tend to have disdain toward EVERYONE - particularly anyone who seems to be in their way, or whose behaviour is otherwise annoying.  A sociopathic individual COULD decide that all members of a certain demographic are annoying, but that's not really common.
