I have a dream. A dream that you all realize what "racist" means.

Race , a manufactured word , used by governments to segregate folks
Everything I fill out , including the census , Race - Other_Human
I will not have it any other way.
There IS only one.

Say what you will of the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King , Jr . , a great person was taken from this earth too early.

I have said that as well, if we took the race off of any application or anything else that asked for it then people would have to be chosen by their merits and nothing else.

Racism.......
I call BS (yes there are still very racist people but not as many as dems would have you believe).
It is one's policy, practice and out look that are judged mostly in today's world.
Color of skin means little, most of what is considered "racism" today is about those who choose to be victims.
Seriously, I know countless "white" people who would probably be considered racist to those that choose to live under the umbrella of victimhood but would vote for a black conservatives in a heartbeat.
I honestly hope Candice Owens runs for office one day.
I absolutely love Allen West, Ben Carson, Herman Cain and a host of Americans of color (I refuse to use the term "African American " as it segregates AMERICANS).
Any way, what do I know. I have been drinking.

What was the climate of racism like back then?

Basically , the ignorant folk tried to hold out and hold on to their "bigoted" ways .
And there is a difference between being a bigot and being racist.(re:Archie Bunker , All in the Family style)
Most were old school Democrat ( I kid you not) .
It was not as bad as the folks today believe.(at least not here in Georgia)
Desegregation in the schools were the greatest hurdle to overcome.
Dems fought that tooth and nail.

Just a short outlook from me on some of the misconceptions of the time.

Grew up in the 70's in South Carolina myself. Never remember it being that bad here either.
The only thing that mostly pissed (pisses) us off are people of any color who think they are owed something without working for it.

Shhh...I was young in 1963 .
But , being blessed with non-bigoted (ahem: Republican/Conservative) parents I got to learn of King.

no, if you can't read the OP and decide what it's about, you have no business asking questions. Stay in school.

Racism is bearing hate towards another culture.
It’s just coincidence that culture and pigment go hand-in-hand.

Humans are simple creatures, we fear and blame that which we don’t understand.

I agree with you 100% , hate is taught through indoctrination and fear which is based on ignorance

there is no biological basis for race

we are all one species , no races

however , I really think rather than focusing on the many differences we have (which are only degrees of difference
in our outward expression) , we should focus on all that we have similar
so we should do away with black this , white that , why call black people black, or white people white, when they are nothing like the night sky or a white piece of paper . We are all just a spectrum of flesh tones

black culture this , white folks that and everything in between

when we look at culture , its all human ,

its not specific to your skin colour

I think this practice is divisive

your skin colour didnt make the culture, it was your human brain , one you share with your species
