They also act randomly (not necessarily with reason) so that the others may not predict it coming. Lastly, the fear of being different (race, religion, etc) I believe goes back to an innate team building element in the brain as well as recognizing outsiders of the tribe. Outsiders are naturally treated with caution due to the aforementioned violence.
