    Will race and Prejudice ever disappear in the Us? Will its citizens see Equality for All ..?

    Why is Race and Prejudice Still alive in the USA? Will it ever disappear, and will the US ever be an egalitarian society...?

    One thing that Americans have always been good at is hating. At the start of our nation, we hated the French and the Indians. A few centuries ago, our focus was on how much we hated African Americans. Today, the main group people like to hate is the LGBT community and the Middle East. It is easy to get behind a cause or a group of people to hate. It's easy and it comes natural to people. Sadly, it is not easy for people to step outside of themselves and try to help out other people.

    There will never be a truly egalitarian society. There will always be at least one group that thinks they are better than everyone else. As a society, we must make a conscious thought to treat others as equals and to stop treating people with such hate and distaste.

    To be realistic, prejudice will never disappear in its entirety in the United States.  We as a people will never be evolved enough to consider that we are of one race- the human race and we are all one according to the universe.   As prejudice against one group seemingly disappear, another group is subject to prejudice depending upon the political and/or social climate at the time. 

    Of course, overt prejudice has somewhat disappeared.  However, many prejudices are often covert.   For example, a person who is considered the other by the majority society may be denied service at a restaurant, being not promoted at work, and/or be followed in a store.   Of course, the reasons given for such treatment is pretextual i.e. "well the restaurant was closed at the time",  " we selected a person who possess more qualifications and/or who has more educational/work experience", and/or " you cannot afford such a product".   These pretextual excuses have an underlying prejudicial context based upon the person's protected class status whether it is race/color, national origin, religion, and/or related status.  Yes, prejudice is alive in all its insidious covert forms.

    I don't believe racism or prejudices will ever fully disappear from the United States or the world. Racism and prejudices exist because of the fears of differences. People will always be different from one another. There is too much variety especially in a country composed entirely of immigrants. Because racism and prejudices will never fully disappear, the United States created a system of laws to ensure mankinds God given rights are protected. The entire United States Government was originally designed to protect mankind's God given rights. This is also one of the reasons so many governments in the world hate America. Many governments want to oppress God given human rights using racism, prejudices, overregulation, oppressive laws, and force. Equality for all comes in the form of protecting our rights. It is up to each individual to use this freedom to build their own individual version of the American Dream. America ensures your right to the pursuit of happiness but it won't build your life for you. That is what it is to be truely free.

    Well its not only in USA. Don't get shocked when I tell you that this prevails in all countries and tribes no matter from which race they spring from. The reason seems to be the innate urge to feel supreme and the mis understanding of believing ourselves as better. The human elements of jealousy and hate nourishes this prejudice. The religion informs us that the Sataan is all time busy attaking us with his weapons of deceit, hate, jealousy and like. So, we do not live in all peace or utter purity. I don't find this disappearing  totally, nonetheless, it may decrease with more education and practicing acceptance of others.

    Sadly enough I don't feel it will ever be completely gone.  There are far to many American's who teach their hatred to thier children and the circle continues.

    No. You really have to ask? I highly doubt we will ever being a nice society who doesn't dislike someone. South Park has people disliking gingers, with ginivitis. The south, well, we don't like African American's at times though they are our neighbors, the mexican's are everywhere. Florida probably doesn't like cuban's much. Etc.
