Do people snore if they are unconscious?

Certainly can

Neck-throat
If the airway partially obstructs/impairs air flow, then you can snore. Has nothing to do with your level of consciousness.

How does anesthesia induce unconsciousness?

No one quite knows.

The anesthetic agents and gasses that have been used to induce over the anesthetic act in the central nervous system. There are several theories about what they actually do, but most boil down to putting certain areas of cells to sleep that then cause the patient to fall asleep.

What exactly does it take to fall unconscious?

Unconsciousness

Heart_rate
Falling unconscious most often happens as a faint. The most common cause of faint is what is called a "vasovagal" reaction in which fright, pain, disgust, horror, or other stimulus triggers the vagus nerve to lower your heart rate until your blood pressure drops too low to maintain normal cerebral consciousness. The other major cause of fainting is just low blood pressure, eg., dehydration, etc

As human beings can drs have unconscious racism?

Unconscious racism

Open-uri20130708-31167-1h1wnob
It would be rare to encounter this amongst younger US trained doctors where we train with and treat patients from all walks of life. Doctors know first hand all humans are the same color underneath & most treat patients with the same principals regardless of one's race. When a patient senses unconscious racism from a doctor, it is likely the patient's perception and not reality.
