RACISM, I can think of no other anti-social bane that requires less facts, reaches so far, is as counterproductive and so personally self-inflicted. Here, in these United States of America, racism makes up approximately 37% of the American population. There are many people who either deliberately or simply through ignorance, would have you believe the MORE "figurative notion" of 10% racism in America. Many a racist will even use GOD'S Word, the Bible, as an excuse to manage bigotry and racism in their daily lives. I find it to be a CULTURE of its own and those who live it, are spiritually and culturally depraved. The "so-called" EXPERTS would have us believe that racism is primarily conceived out of fear. I, myself, would rather apply this "self-inflicted" culture to all the properties unveiled to us in GOD'S Word, the Bible - which are fear (through ignorance), selfishness, envy and jealousy - all held to ones own feeling of SELF-WORTH. And now, even MORE pronounced than before, it's in the White House - in the President and in MANY others! What do you think?
Since the election of President Donald Trump, news outlets and social media accounts have swelled with reports of swastikas at schools, racist taunts, and other hate-fueled attacks and acts of intimidation. The Southern Poverty Law Center, which has aggregated media reports and gathered submissions from its website, catalogued 1064 such incidents, 13 of which were later debunked as false reports, in the first month after Trump won the presidency. (Twenty-six of those incidents were perpetrated against Trump supporters.) The SPLC has presented that data in aggregate, creating an invaluable record of the scope of post-election hate crimes.

Racism is what you get when people are afraid of something or in this case someone they do not know. I don't believe in God, but I do believe in kindness and compassion towards my fellow man and woman. I will be honest, I have never been so appalled by people than what I have heard some people say about President Obama and his family. I think it comes from fear and not being very intelligent.
I do believe that racism has always been in all cultures and the media in America loves to push it.The divide and conquer tactics has torn the country down to its core for the last 8 years.If WE let this continue We will have to deal with a civil war and martial law. It is about time to stop pointing fingers at imaginary enemies and ignore the lies coming from the corrupt media for our own sake.The new administration has shown no racism but the media keeps spewing made up crap stories to make you think so. We all need to get it together and start working together to try and put this country back on track. we the people have the power to stop all the madness going on if we work together.
Galatians 3:28, "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus."
With God, eveyone is equal. It's God's will that we all be brought together as one in Christ. Whithout Christ, that won't happen. And since the nation as a whole won't give their life to the Lord, society in general will always be sinful, and always have hate, racism, robbing, raping, killing, disease and disasters.
Let me be real blunt, because I don't know any other way. It sounds like your surprised that racism is rearing it's ugly head in America? Which never really left! When reading your short summary I got this feeling your part of the conscious community -- which I don't have a problem with if that's who you are. But, floating on a cloud and getting in touch with your inner self isn't going to stop the inevitable on whats happening in America. People refuse to see the writing on the wall, that we were sitting on a time bomb that already exploded. Racism, I'll show you what racism really looks like? Come to Chicago where I lived all my life on the westside, 56 years to be exacted 1961 to present day. The city of diversity, Yeah right! It's a city of diverse hatred toward black folks...there I said it! blacks. We are getting shot dead in the streets by police the ones who are suppose to keep us safe. No hope, No resources, no jobs, no way out= violence.Is this racism or just my magination?.
