    Because it's still happening. Just because it's not as bad as it used to be, doesn't mean it's not still going on. It's true some people play it up, but we still don't have equality in the US. It's not just racism, but sexism too.

    Women still don't make the same amount of money men make doing the same jobs. There are countless polls, graphs and other things showing us that we don't even have financial freedom. The fact is, it takes time for things like racism to die or change, that's why there are laws in place for equality. If there weren't, then you'd have people deciding who works for them on gender and skin color.

    I think that if people didn't complain about it, then nothing would be done to fix it. Think about it, if America didn't revolt, we would still be under English rule. To get what you want, you have to take some action. Until people change their biases towards outward appearances, then nothing will change.

    I think your question is incorrect, Why use the word 'black' racism is in every society, and most of us have had a touch of it,

    pointing fingers at a particular race is a form of racism that we should stamp out,

    In general people whine about anything, it could be a cat or a dog they lost ages ago, or a woman/man that was in there life and is now gone or a war victim that they blame the goverment for sending there love one to a war that should not be in the first place.

    You seem to be whine now about a race of people who just might have a good reason to do that.

    Lets live and leave the Jones next door alone,

    Peace and blessings, love always.

    While it maybe a convenient excuses for some there are others like myself who fear the dangers of complacency. Racism exists but yes, "crying Wolf" Is not good for anyone. As Jews don't want the holocaust repeated so too do Blacks not want slavery, segregation, and victimization repeated/practiced.

    How many people know about the Tuskegee Syphilis Study, a 40-year government study in which 399 Black men from Macon County, Alabama were deliberately denied effective treatment for syphilis in order to document the natural history of the disease.

    How about when At least eighty "charity" patients were exposed to full-body radiation at the University Of Cincinnati Medical Center. The patients were exposed to radiation ten times the level believed to be safe at the time and twenty-five patients died. Three-quarters of the patients in the study were Black men and women. The consent signatures were forged.

    Hate runs deep in the hearts of many.

    Well, in my opinion, black people's resentment today comes from their aunts and uncles who grew up during that time. It's only natural that many act out the way they do, especially the younger ones. The parents of today's children often neglect important discussions with their children about sex, racial issues, etc.; it all starts in the home.

    Today youth as a whole is being taught to find loopholes to get ahead or to get themselves out of a sticky situation.
    Since racism has always been an issue, when certain unsavory events take place that is in opposition to the blacks in this case, they use it as a means to get themselves out of trouble by calling out the white guy.

    And yes, it goes both ways. But no matter how it's looked at, every individual has control over their path in life. To sit and complain and make excuses about being oppressed or whatever is a sign of weakness on their part.

      This is a lie!  Obviously you have not grown up in a Black home!  We teach our children, God, family and competition and excellence in education!  It doesn't matter the color of one's skin, but the excellence of  one's character!  I'm 64 yrs old!

    "THEY CAME FIRST for the Communists,
    and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.

    THEN THEY CAME for the trade unionists,
    and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.

    THEN THEY CAME for the Jews,
    and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.

    THEN THEY CAME for me
    and by that time no one was left to speak up."

    Black folks are not the only ones who constantly whine about racism, white folks were also victim of racism, so, it all races who constantly complain about their condition, and so on.
    so this is an unfair question to begin with... I work with some white Russian, they too are being constantly whining...

    Because questions like this antagonizes when one watches the news everyday!  Ignorant!  Simply Ignorant!  I guess your blood line is "pure?"  No, you probably have that "one drop" in your blood line as well, but with your "looks" you can probably "pass" for something else!

    Blacks like to define racism as ethnicity plus power, while saying they don't have power, to exclude themselves from the definition of racism. Thus black lives matter members beating up whites for not virtue signalling isn't considered racism by their definition of it, nor are polar bear hunting / knock out games where blacks target whites considered racist but justice.

    Now black activists are actively calling for violence against whites and cops, but their definition of racism doesn't let their open bigotry be considered racism.

    Hi danielthorne! How's it going?

    Tell me: What is the other direction that racism "street" goes in? Also, "Black Lives Matter," for example, is a political movement. Do we want to call political movements "whining"?
