    Agreed

    That's why question is not "why all white people". but their are many and even if they're in the minority that could still millions of people.

    You could submit the question that's implicit in the excellent points you make

    Very well said. Many forget the ultimate betrayal and discrimination. The American Indians. Those who immigrated here, stole land from Native Americans that had lived on and cared for hundreds of years. We are siblings fighting among ourselves.

    Great Point!

    When I made my comment I was thinking about the United States, and not looking at a world view.

    You're right Most people don't understand that the president is mostly a figurehead. Koch brothers and their kind affect of lot of laws and dealing of the government by buying politicians through their lobbyist

    Wow Lisa very sincere, astute psychological and interesting take on the question. It's nice to see you and others making sincere efforts to address the underlying reasons of this question rather then just leaving angry or satirical comments

    In many cases these days, white people are now being passed up in order to not be "discriminatory" toward non-whites.

    I think you're thinking of indentured servants. Blacks we're indentured servant too. A person would sign a contract with a creditor as a servant for seven years.Then they were no longer bound by the contract Indentured Servants aren't slaves

    J, life IS too short to fear loss of power. That's exactly what racism is and why it has been increasing especially among older white males in US after election of a black President. "Frenzy" is justified when righteous gains won can easily be lost

    Still have segregated water fountains? Segregated schools? Still not allowed to sit anywhere on a bus? Still not allowed to vote? How is it much worse? I'm not saying there aren't INDIVIDUALS that are racist. There are, and in ALL tones of skin.

    In school it is taught that systematic, government sanctioned racism is in the past...and IT IS. There will always be racism by individuals...and not just white to black...
