Ron Weasleyโ€™s character is consciously written as somewhat racist. Not as racist as Malfoy, of course - he doesnโ€™t scoff at mudbloods and halfbloods, and he doesnโ€™t see himself as superior at all. Still, he unquestionably accepts the inferior position of house elves (they love serving), when he finds out that Lupinโ€™s werewolf his reaction is not only scared but also disgusted (Donโ€™t touch me!) and he is clearly very uncomfortable finding out that Hagrid is half-giant (giants are wild and savage).
And this is brilliant. Because it demonstrates that racism isnโ€™t only present in clearly malicious and evil people, in the Malfoys and Blacks - itโ€™s also there in warm, kind, funny people who just happened to learn some pretty toxic things growing up in a pretty toxic society. And they can unlearn them too, with some time and effort. Ron eventually accepts Hagridโ€™s parentage, lets Lupin bandage his leg and in the final battle, he worries about the safety of the house elves.
Some people are prejudiced because they are evil, and some people are prejudiced because they donโ€™t know better yet. And those people can learn better, and become better people. And thatโ€™s an important lesson. The lesson taught about discrimination shouldnโ€™t be โ€œonly evil people do itโ€, because then all readers will assume it doesnโ€™t apply to them. Instead old JK teaches us โ€œyou too are probably doing it, and you should do stop ASAPโ€.

damned if i do.: Ron is racist - and thatโ€™s greatย  (via raphmike)
