    Actually racism in the US is a generational thing. For the most part it vastly decreases from one generation to the next. I live in the deep south and know what it was like in the segregation era compared to what it is like now. Most of the remaining bigots are a minority of old farts who just will not change their views.

    Clubs that give special treatment to a race, are racist. That's just the way it is.

The drug war is economically destroying the actual ability of drug users to grow out of their habit, as well as creating black market crime. Due to that black market crime, a lot of businesses wont open up shop in the inner city making it harder for people in the inner city to have any actual economic stability.

    I believe there is systematic racism, however i think it's an Unintentional outcome of the welfare state, war on drugs, etc etc. the worse thing as a nation would be to blame white people for it rather then understanding too much government does this
    I agree in regards to the unintentional outcome of the welfare state, which keeps so many minorities trapped in institutional poverty. It also does not help that race baiters like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton make a comfortable living stoking the fires of what racism still exists.

    "Try" in what context? You imagine me entering "rooms" (where, what are the rooms of/for. what building?). How would I "try" this? As in literally what do you see me doing in "trying" this?

    I only belonged to trade clubs and we didn't give a **** about anyone's race one way or another. IMO unless the school is a race school it shouldn't have race-based clubs. I attended a vocational school and so I only participated in vocational clubs.

    racism on the front does exist, but true racism in regards to the superiority complex of post racial and segregated america has come a long way and is almost non-existent. This type of racism is still around other parts of the world especially NK and Middle East, but not in America. I think a lot of people confused prejudice and stereotyping with racism.
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.
