Racism is Alive

Updated on December 27, 2017

Saturday night enraged "white supremacists and neo-Nazi men marched in Charlottesville ,Virginia, carrying tikka torches yelling racist slurs against Blacks and Jews. We don't want you here-take back our street-"Blood and soil. "white supremacist and Neo-Nazi marched in Charlottesville Virginia, Jews will not replace us-we don't want you here "Blood and soil." Heather Heyes a 32 year old woman was viciously ran down by a 20 year old White supremacist who hated enough to kill.. It took the president of the United States 17 hours to address the violence that took place in the streets of Charlottesville, VA. Racism in American is a growing epidemic that is manifested by hate, bigotry and small minded people.

Trump babble about the violence blaming both sides, we want children to be safe not Trump or Obama. Donald Trump the president refused to denounce the name of the Neo-Nazi or the white Supremacists, saying both side had good people.

The next day Trump said violence was evil and bad ,calling out the name of the KKK, Neo Nazi and the white supremacist. David Duke the former leader of the KKK, email Trump that they was the one who put him in the White House. Trump went back to his ordinal statement saying when he made the first speech he didn't know all the facts, he saw both sides being bad. David Duke thanked Trump for telling the Truth. The president gave these racist groups an unambiguous push to continue their act of violence's, to any race who is not white.

racism is a discrimination Prejudice toward people based on their race and ethnicity. It is a powerful tool invented towards Black's by for centuries. Will racist ever be in the Pass? In 2008 Barrack Obama the first Afro-American was elected President, this divided the nation for some Whites, A Black man should have never been the president of the United States in the eyes of some whites.

Republicans did everything they could do to stop Obama, he was Ignored, disrespected by Republicans who refused to basically work with him. Obama was attacked by Republicans who said Obama a black man in the White House was a man with Liberal agenda. For Afro-Americans race will always be a major issue to some whites. Obama was A Black man who held the power of America in his hands and that unacceptable to some whites. Racism in America will always be here because of the color of one's skin. Famous Black's who are successful are still wearing the scars of being black. In 2017 Monday night at Fenway Park Adam Jones A player of the Baltimore Orioles was booed and yelled at by a few drunks who shouted out the N-word throwing peanuts at the ball player .

Tuesday night a Black woman singing National Anthem was discriminated against by Red Sox fan, he was reported and banned from Fenway Park for life.

As much as we want to believe racism is a thing of the past, in hindsight it will always be a struggle for Afro-Americans because of their African heritage. we saw our first Black President disrespected, humiliated and treated badly because he refused to be a yes man.

Will the N-word ever be forgotten?.


Racism in America will always a major issue for Black's in America

      I think racism stems from the fear of someone different than us and the desire to be a step above. You saw this in the south with the poor whites, who were extremely racist towards black people and in the north with the treatment of some Europeans, especially the Irish even though financially they were often in the same shoes and you see this throughout the planet.

      I have thought for years about a cure for this disease? And I have come to the opinion that we need to learn to accept and embrace our differences and then we may come to the realization we are more alike then different and there is nothing to fear.

      Racism was created thousands of year ago by a generation of people who never took the opportunity to understand each other.
