Racism in the USA will probably never go away. Agree/Disagree
You cannot remove hate if you remove hate you remove love same is with matter and anti-matter that is how world works.
Quidquid anglicus dictum sit, altum viditur
It's a base thing in human nature that will never entirely be wiped out.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Racism in the human species will never go away.
Agree it will probably never go away. Its taught so until people stop teaching it, it will never end.
But it always gets better, races are more united in america now than they have ever been.
People become smarter and more educated and more experienced to issues like these.
It could end one day but we wont see it, neither will my great, great grand kids.
1.Stop giving air time to race parasites to Al Sharpton, Jessy Jackson and race card players. Just like the KKK,Black Panthers, La Raza, Nazis and other racist these scum foster resentment towards other races.
2.Stop focusing on race.Every American citizen is an American,so we should get rid of labels like african American, European American, Mexican American and any other hyphenated Americans.We should ban applications from asking someone their race.TV shows should show more interracial couples,mixed adoptions,bi-racial children and adults as though it is something normal instead of a stand against racism. American history should be integrated, there should be no black history month.Race and ethnic focused classes should be banned in public schools and schools that receive public money(like what Arizona did), these types of classes only foster resentment towards other races.
3.End affirmative action.Kind of hard to say that race doesn't matter if we have laws that say it does.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
humans tend to shift into tribes instinctively. it's no real surprise; for the majority of the time primates have been evolving, that's been the way to survive.
similarly, my guess is that some of the racism is hard wired. if one saw a tribe coming over the hill who looked significantly different, chances are that they weren't coming to bring beer and party before leaving peacefully the next day.
the situation is significantly different now, though. a shrinking world and a global economy and society ties our fates together like at no other point in history. while it may take evolution a while to catch up, i think if we make it, racial prejudice will erode to reflect the times and the mission. it's also worth mentioning that races evolved during a status quo of geographical isolation that is less and less prevalent each year.
will racism ever completely disappear? i would say that it's going to be more like approaching an object by dividing the distance between by half each time. we might never actually reach the object, but we'll be so close that it won't matter.
1.) this is an attack on free speech, yes it sucks but these people have it too. But in general yes the MEDIA/PRESS shouldn't cater to these media mutts and give them FREE airtime. Just like football and wrestling made the decisions to TRY not to show fights or people running on the field/ring so maybe they will stop because they dont get on TV.
2.) I agree with this one but again people and MEDIA both need to help this. Nobody in REAL life says african american thats a STUPID pc term made up. We are all AMERICANS.
applications with race on them Im fine with as demographics isnt an issue to me.
TV shows are already doing this and have been , its how some of the strides have been made with blacks, interracial couples and gays over the last two decades or so.
American history SHOULD be integrated I agree with that.
as far as banning special studies, thats meaningless to me. As long as those classes are ELECTIVES they are perfectly fine. If these classes foster resentment in people those people already have a problem.
as far as a month, day, week dedicated to a race, religion, gender etc etc I have no problem with that either. Theres probably a million of these things, they are also meaningless and again people that take resentment against them already have a problem.
3.) AA/EO isnt going anywhere and isnt a problem at all. The problem is people who abuse the rules, break the laws and cheat and then falsely claim AA/EO.
The solution to this is already listed above dont give into baseless crybaby groups and people that are part of the problem and not part of the solution.
I heard a black man on a call-in radio show (Chicago WLS) say, "I'm a Negro. It's what I am and what I call myself. I'm not African-American. I resent the word." The talk show host said, "Well, I think that's great, and I completely understand. But what I want you to know is that I can't even use that word on the radio." What have we come to?2.Stop focusing on race.Every American citizen is an American,so we should get rid of labels like african American, European American, Mexican American and any other hyphenated Americans.We should ban applications from asking someone their race.TV shows should show more interracial couples,mixed adoptions,bi-racial children and adults as though it is something normal instead of a stand against racism. American history should be integrated, there should be no black history month.Race and ethnic focused classes should be banned in public schools and schools that receive public money(like what Arizona did), these types of classes only foster resentment towards other races.
I think I'd probably say "fix it" rather than end it...and only because we've done such a dismal job of educating blacks in the United States. They need the "hand up."3.End affirmative action.Kind of hard to say that race doesn't matter if we have laws that say it does.
Thank you, Quazi!
Another good one, Luna.
I am of the opinion that racism will go away, in the year 3012.
Even now, it is evaporating, much as water does, and if we learn to think and reason better than water, then it will go away, ever so slowly. There are many who are not honest with themselves, being honest will help...
