Don't waste your breath chief. The sad truth is that if the majority of white people don't see or experience the racism that black folks do, then
they won't acknowledge it's a problem. You can google some some stats on how each side views racism in america to back that up.
Hell i'm in the south and i remember the funk that came up when south carolina removed their confederate flags.
There is racism and prejudice on both sides. But since the OP is adapt at putting up articles about the racism faced by white people he should watch
a video called "White Priveldge" by Tim Wise. That video will let you know what we face.
Now that your getting just a taste of racism and prejudice, it sucks don't it? Yea, when black folks say something about racism and prejudice the
other side just denies it. But when white people face the same roadblocks it's unamerican, not right (this is the vibe i'm getting, especially here
at ATS), something needs to change! And people say black folks whine about race to much.
Read that thread on ATS about those black kids turned down at that white swim club and browse the responses.
Well, welcome to America...
