There are still a lot of racists about, and that's why it's still an issue.
Even on ATS you can see them - the sad part is I really think most of them believe they're not racist. People are EXPERTS at justification and
minimization when it comes to their own actions.
I think what I'm saying is that a lot of people are still very racist and don't even realize it. They've built mechanisms to defend themselves from
their own reality. Instead of tell themselves "I hate all people of this race" they find statistics and social reasons to stereotype that group.
They then claim they don't hate the color, just the stereotype, but you can see they paint all people of that color with the same brush..
This is just a little example, there are other ways people hide their own racism from themselves.
If someone is racist it should be pointed out. Racism is a relic of the past. Racism is unnatural, people who aren't exposed to racism can grow up
with people of different colors and never have a problem related to race - so race is nurture, not nature, which means it propagates itself by word of
mouth, not in any organic or natural way.
Racism in the USA was established in revolutionary times to create a "buffer" between the rich white man and the poor white man. It's managed to
stick around and evolve into it's present state today. People are too ignorant to realize that racism was created and nurtured and developed as a
control mechanism against them. Make the poor people fight the other poor people, and they'll be too busy to realize that we're stealing from them
on every front.
So people, stop being controlled. There is only one race, the human race. The differences between you and the insanely wealthy are FAR greater than
the difference between the average white guy and the average black guy.
