Mutual respect

Why do we need any laws specifying categories of persons against whom it is a crime to discriminate? Does the fact that such laws exist mean that it is OK to discriminate against those who are not specifically mentioned as protected?

If we simply learn to respect the civil and legal rights of every person as a human being, even those with whom we disagree, there would be no need for such laws.
