Thank you Sky, for bringing this to ATS's table
I know from travel experiences that the U.S. is one of the least racist countries in the World.
But there seems to be an agenda to paint the U.S. as one of the most racist countries in the World.
I have not traveled outside of the U.S. I have Traversed all of the U.S and in the age we are currently in, the U.S. is not the Racist Country it is
painted out to be. Especially on ATS, my own interpretations and findings because of how diverse the ATS culture is, many do paint the U.S. as a bunch
of bigoted, pompas, racists. This could not be farther from the truth in my opinion, again this is only the interpretations I have assertained from
non U.S. citizens on this site alone. Most don't realize that the U.S. is so utterly politically correct that if you spoke the wrong words to
another, you can be painted and branded a racist and if that person you degraded so happened to be a president of a company can definately put a
wrench in any future employement plans any individual may have.
So why do we so often hear that America is the "most racist country in the world?" America welcomes people from all cultures and ethnicities. In
fact what is "an American?" An American is a mix of many different origins. Look at our President for example.
I personally feel that it's from Hollywood. Most humans interpret Western American Culture from the movies they see. Hell, if you watched Grand
Turino w/ Clint Eastwood, and spin the hands of time back 40-60years... That is a exact replica of how many acted towards one another. It's the toxic
essence that is being spewed accross the board and tarnishing the "actual truth" of: When a foreigner comes to America, unless your in a bible belt,
holier than thou and your not the right color (folks theres only so many of those left by the way) We will treat you the same as everyone else. And by
the "same" is not always a good thing either, this can be good or bad.
That is not to say that America didnt' have it's dark times in regards to slavery, but this is a Earth problem and not just secluded to America when
at a given point in time, there were just as many White slaves than blacks. It's not about race anymore here in America, only for those American's
who want to beat a dead dog do we still see color. It's a dog eat dog country and if your not ready to go the extra 100miles... Well... You just
won't make it.
Just my thoughts... Take a penny~Leave a penny~
