I hate the racism in the United States...

Postby zboy1 » Tue Jul 16, 2013 10:14 pm


I'm not sure if the females in the U.S. feel the same way...but I feel like the U.S. is one of the most racially divided countries in the world. Take, for example, the Trayvon Martin case; even though I supported George Zimmerman in his trial, the vitriol and hate that Whites exhibited towards Blacks, has shocked me to a great extent. And I'm tired of all the races competing and fighting with each other, seemingly all the time, in this country. There's too much racial tension here...

And in my opinion, the most racist countries in the world are mostly Anglo: U.K., Australia, USA, etc...When I lived in the U.K. for a period of three years, I found the racism over there was as bad as the United States. And, I keep hearing stories out of Australia, of all the racist incidents going-on in that country. I know people who have visited Australia tell me the country is very racist. I would also include many Asian and Middle Eastern countries to the list, but at least, being Asian, I won't have to face the same kind of racism in Asia that I face in the United States.

I agree but I'd like to add that it's not just racial. There's discrimination with age, sex, religion, disability, language and I'm sure if I think about it for a few more minutes, I can list many more. Oh, and let's not forget sexual preference, there's another one.

I avoid news like this as much as possible... I know very little about the case because people get too "up in arms" about these sorts of 'news stories' to have any sort of normal conversation about them. I have only one main problem with these stories, and that is that our 'news stations' spend so much time turning tragedy into debate. I never turn my TV on those channels, on the rare occasion that I turn my TV on at all these days. There should be no splitting of the nation on a topic such as this... a person died, be it accidental or on purpose, people die every day here in all manner of horrible ways, their families grieve and it never makes the national news. I feel as long as the radio, news channels, and press keep having hosts, news anchors, and writers who are permitted to give their opinions and not the facts, we will continue to be separated into these different groups (i.e those who support one side and those who support the other side) when all that matters is that someone died at the hands of someone else, and that is always a terrible thing.

I've never been to the US, but the few countries I've been too all have some form of racism, I think just about everywhere has this man made disease ..:

Caribbean..; White vs Black or Black vs Indian
Turkey..; Turkish vs Kurdish
UK..; White upper class vs White Chavs, Whte vs Indians/paks etc etc
India..; Indians vs Pakistans
Venezuela..; Spanish Venes vs Native Venes
Asia..; everyone vs everyone
