In light of the Charleston church shooting,do you believe that the American racial climate is going
to be MUCH WORSE before it gets MUCH BETTER? Do you further contend that there is going to be a race war in America based upon recent events including the Charleston church shooting, escalating police brutality against Blacks, and riots in cities such as Ferguson and Baltimore?
If there were to ever be a war in America ,more than likely it will come from within , But there will be a multitude of reasons , most likely not one in particular but many" reasons "will float to the surface . The first reason for a revolution is almost always economics , poverty , a collapse of the pyramid that affects everyone in order to include everyone . Oh there will be important side issues , race , culture , ethnic demographics , on and on .
No , I do not believe race issues will get much if any worse at all . I do believe that just by the presence of President Obama ,that race is a hot button , his words "bring it on " . But in effect when he is gone the hot fire of the media's importance towards racism will also die down . First , because it's partially a created issue . In Truth , There is very little REAL racism in America today !
I do believe , just exactly by the title of this question , that all things that point to this very much media , invented issue of race problems , will die down to a new and less important reality . The media will drop this whole charade when it begins to slide back into it's less than "sellable " importance after Pres. Obama is gone . Fair or not ! Was there a real race problem in the eighties , ninety's, two thousand's decades ? -No .
But it became the new marketing strategy of our, very much less than stellar media !
I am in the fact that a war is a very serious matter, but at the same time an easy to camouflage scourge. Wars all of a kind are happening right now, call them race or economical, either of them are happening. What we can do is teach our kids better.
To suggest that there is no racism in this country is to be blind to reality. If you think there is no racism alive and well in this country you haven't lived where I have.
I don't believe there is going to be a race war. There aren't enough people who would follow extremists into that kind of conflict. The internet has made us more aware of these incidents which might cause two things to happen. One, we make unjust connections between unrelated crimes to suggest a 'growing trend' in the country. And two, racially motivated crimes are drug into the light for all to see.
What I mean to say by this is that there are absolutely racially motivated crimes happening every day. And these crimes need to be recognized so we can start getting better at stopping them from happening. But, at the same time, we can't jump to conclusions that these crimes are leading to some sort of war. They've been happening for decades, the only difference now is that they're more visible. Peaceful protests and discussions about race also happen every day, but those don't get the same kind of media attention.
i think people are watching too much tv shootings and the religious they are following are inducing their minds to evil doers

It has been reported that a 20 year old anglo male entered a predominantly black church and opened fire killing 9. This is to be considered a "hate crime". I have always said that there are too many incidents that involve race to chalk them all up as random occurrences. It is disturbing...
