The more you complain, the less I care about your problems.
the problem is racism. There must be a way to stop it. if you were to dislike someone else because of where they live, it is nearly the same thing. Then there is disliking someone else because of thier religion. This is all because there are others like you that you would rather identify with, and therefore dislike these people of colour, or, whites.
I would like to think it is only whites that are racist. But, in africa, there are blacks that are racist too against other blacks, and in the near east sunnis hate others. This means it is not just whites being racist towards non whites, but as you live in america you only hear things that aspply to you.
The way to get rid of racism is to send out subliminal messages in advertising that enourage non racism. Like hypnotising people into peace. I am sure that proposing this to the public will be met with joy. If there is another way though, as I am sure that people might object to being brain washed, then let's look further?
If we were to have more pop stars of other colours, then there would be more acceptance as people listen to and think about the pop star on a personal level. There should be more of this.
Then there is cross profiling where you would play adverts for other race groups on the 'wrong' channels. This will leave whites seeing blacks and blacks seeing whites a lot, and will discourage racism as they are up to thier ears in other race groups.
But is there another way? i suppose racism is not a crime, except where it manifests itself in crimes against race groups. If we want to see the end of racism, we need to do as much as partial bystanders to the people that are racist. Here in south afria there is a black man in politics, or he was, that hated white people. He would have led them to the slaughter!
Now, if we want to see the end of racism, then we need to get people together from a young age. I know one of our cities johannesburg has a lot of mixed races, and there is hardly any racism there. So, for an immediate solution, just throw them together legally, politically and financially. But, how can we do this?
we should try to make a quota system for work places. This will bring parents together with people of other races, and then this behaviour will filter down onto the kids. It starts at work. No good having a big day on the weekend where all sorts of race groups are invited to the same place, only to sit together with thier own race! That is no good - they must need each other.
Okay, how about we only hire repair people and service people that work with whites and middle classes that are black? Or how would that work? No, maybe going through the television is the best way to do it...
!! Going to my destruction !!
I pretty much agree with Charlatan's comment. Although I don't believe Racism can't be annihilated, just as you can't destroy Idiocy or Death, it can be turn into a lesser social issue, and that path can be attained with certain measures, some of which the comment above mine has mentioned.
Also, speaking from the outside, I believe Racism in the USA is not rampant, albeit still an important subject that is not getting the right discussion. Having a "Black History Month" or naming streets after MLK won't really do. For example, and I may be (and hope I am) wrong with this, but the division that Barack Obama has brought to society excels that of political thought/theory/belief, and is backed by a still powerful racial resentment.
I agree. I believe many white people don't wish to face the ugly truths brought to light by the civil rights movement and so try to pretend that racism is "over."Also, speaking from the outside, I believe Racism in the USA is not rampant, albeit still an important subject that is not getting the right discussion.

But truth, Hajjaj was convinced, held many layers.
