Most of the United States population considers the racism as one of the principal problems which usa must face.Many people I know assure to know a person as definable as racist.I believe the issue of the raczism has undergoed such an evolution for which the same racists toil to recognize the problem in them . I fell like the actual forms it is not aware of racism nor it is taken by a repulsion feeling, because one expresses in indirect and thin forms

I didn't make that comment to up my ratings, or to gain something. I just have absolutely no clue what this person is talking about.

i think the US is the only country in the world that is so enamored with race. most countries dont have the hang ups that americans have when in come to race. when i used to live in a different country, i actually didn't thought much of one's race. but when i came to america, i was gradually instroduced to the race conscious american culture. lets face it and get real here. americans more than anybody in the world equate race with stereotypical inclinations.

Racism is only the symptom of ignorance and fear. Many people fear what they do not know. For this reason, many minority people in the US (and around the world!) are hated. I have Muslim friends that weren't even given a second glance in society before 9/11. Especially right afterwards, they were targets of hatred because of misunderstanding and fear. People need to open their minds, calm themselves down, and look at people for WHO they are, not WHAT they are. Stereotypes in the media only play into people's fears. Groups of people have been the targets of hatred for many, many years and unfortunately, until people realize they need to come together and love one another, people will always have problems with other people for stupid reasons.

well said ivory you get my plus for the page. Is funny because a lot of people are racist against the US as well but the funny thing is the US is made up of multi cultural groups...blacks,whites,asia, indians a virtual melting pot of knowledge is here so much we could learn from each other. Not just the US but all over

Racism is a learned behavior through a person's environment. I believe in most cases it's past down from one generation to the next. The only way to break the cycle is to get out of the box and stop following in the previous generations footsteps. Usually with a hate, a person has to do something that affects someone directly or personally, but with racism it's hatred by association. The world could be a greater place if people could break away from prejudices and everyone respect everyone as humans.

All problems arise from America only. This is because people are well off for basic needs and they take advantage of poor.

You can not get around racism. Its is part of each and one of us. Everyone including myself have some sort of prejudice inside of them. Its is preach in household, community and bascially our daily lives. We are private citizens (so they say) so the government can't regualte racism. As a matter of fact, they thirved on racism and conflict among people.

I live here in the US and well came from a small town less than 4000 peoples and I would have to say a lil over 50% were illegal in the area I was raised but hey they were our friends and we had great times. The town never grew much because it changed with the crop seasons and stuff but is okay. I worked in the town over from ours because I couldn't get a job in the field or packing house when I first got out of high school because of my skin color. I look back and think wow i could have sued...lol Because the clerk even told me I wouldn't be hired because I was white. sad eh. But is okay. I have been to many states here and while those out side of the US think we are racist I don't think it is as bad as everyone thinks it is. I know there are bills going before congress and things on keeping illegals out. I see it this way. Everyone is welcome in my book but do it legally. I've had friends that were so sick and couldn't aford medical attention and because they were white and not prego they couldn't get any kind of help. I can understand why people want to come here I really can. Its a land of Freedom but a lot of the crime in the area i was from was from illegals and the robberys were bad unless you were good friends with the people in the area and I was. Because shoot we weren't raised to judge people by skin color. But as I grew up and read politics and listened to the news and watched insurance go up because of uninsured motorist. so much feel free to come to my country and work and enjoy the fruits of your labor but please do it legally...It's not just the US that has a racist problem its all over.

One of the problems of racism is that there is no incentive to stop it. I believe that people Like Jessie Jackson profit too much on racism to really push for actual changes in the way people are treated in our country. It is a real shame because there is no real reason for racism. It is usually perpetrated by our least educated and least successful people because they are told that other people are the reason for their failures in life. It is other people that get unfair advantage and help and that is why we can't succeed. The disenfranchised are usually told that racism is the reason why they need to subscribe to a certain way of hate thinking so they can be strong and push some dumb agenda. I am not sure who has the time to hate. I don't really care what or who anybody is as long as they don't infringe on me. It is ridiculous to think anyone is better than anyone else, except for the fact that Coke is better than Pepsi. I mean that is a fact.

Yeah. A white teacher once told me that he was in a gas station at Mississippi (he's from california though) and the black man said, "oh. you go" because some still think white men should go first. However, my teacher said "No dude, I'm from california. we don't do this" Although, the store owner got pissed. It's still a problem in the USA, and it's kinda getting worse on mexicans.

Everybody loves to have a world peace. Why not accept the fact that we are all created by God and they shouldn't treat other people like they have a disease or something. I had experienced this kind of situation in my dance school. Some are friendly but most of them are not. I mean, I am neat and pretty so why are they still like that? Well, can't blame them, they are teens. Maybe they are still out of the real what's up world.

I feel like the sentiments I see in Europe are more racist than in the US. I know white supremacist groups actually hold seats in parliament in Italy and some other countries. America is a melting pot of a million different kinds of people. Because we aren't just one solid group of people sharing the same country that has been that way for centuries, we are generally more accepting. I think racism is definately at an all time low in America, there is no arguing.
