Most do not but those who do believe everybody does it. People are evolved to react to stark differences in appearances but that doesn't transit to racism that requires much much more in the interpretion and classification of such differences, including seeing some differences as relevant. One of the reasons I study what I study (discrimination/extremism) is based on me having strong difficulties to grasp the categories some people use the way they use it. I am also pretty much retarded at classifying peoples "race" or etnicity based on appearances.
