From an outside the USA POV I have to say it seems like most Black Americans have a rather unhealthy preoccupation with race, I see it being brought up far too often and always by people who should know better.

It's not just colleges anymore either. Its middle school and high school as far as teaching some kind of agenda.

The thing is that while racism exists ...
... it is also true, and far more common that racism is used as a means to silence people who disagree with you these days.
I'm no racist. You can't go to a major college and survive four years as a athlete and come out a racist. You don't volunteer to teach inner city school if you're a racist. You just don't. Heck, you don't marry an ethnic minority if you're racist.
But I constantly get called a racist these days because I disagree with the policies of the president.
And I read stuff like this, more stories every day, and I hear more and more commentary about how I am apparently racist just because I'm white and for no better reason than that. I've inherited it, see.
I got laid into by a family member, and was informed I was an "Angry White Male", whose opposition to his policies could only be rooted in my own latent racism...
I mean, I've seen all this in the public square, but didn't expect it in my own house ...

I hope they find her guilty and punish her to death.
So tired of black people telling me anything, I don't even want to look at you. I don't care about you, stay out of my life.
Only whites can be racist. Only whites are charged with hate crime or discrimination. That is unfortunately the way our society works nowadays.
Most white on black racism is a reaction to the behavior and cultural norms of black society. Whites lock their car doors around black neighborhoods not because of racism but out of reaction to what they hear on the news. ( knock out game anyone?)
Whites made oprah rich.
Whites made lebron rich.
Whites elected a black president.
If all whites were racists then none of that could have happened.
why does racism exist? BECAUSE THERE ARE MANY RACES
just like there are many COLORS IN THE SPECTRUM
or TEAMS IN THE NFL. everyones got a preference...even not having a preference is a preference.
if you favor one, you offend another. its a profound duality. We as humans on Earth are encouraged to be unique and naturally seek out our own styles in [insert category here.
racism, colorism, and NFL-teamism are all examples of what is generally reduced to INDIVIDUALISM.
hatred is just one relative aspect to a much larger behavior that we call racism. it is also the most targeted. there are many many other aspects to racism other than hatred that go ignored everyday.
without the entirety of racism on this planet, we would be the borg. it is natural human behavior, it cannot be overcome. the second you take a side you simply reverse roles.
then your a racist-ist.
Didn't natives of North America and Africa welcome Europeans with open arms to their land?
a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.

I'm not sure if the students says "every class" as in this teacher's every class or every class in the college.
