Mahatma Gandhi once said, an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. Yes, there are bad cops, but not all cops are bad. Just like not all black people are criminals. When people say there are more black people in prison in term of % compared to the whites, have they ever thought about Asians? Whites are more likely to go to jail compared to Asians. In 2010, adult black non-Hispanic males were incarcerated at the rate of 4,347 inmates per 100,000 U.S. residents. Adult white males were incarcerated at the rate of 678 inmates per 100,000 U.S. residents. Adult Hispanic males were incarcerated at the rate of 1,755 inmates per 100,000 U.S. residents. Asian Americans have lower incarceration rates than any other racial group, including whites. [ Wikipedia ]
Yes, white people may have traveled all over the world, wiped out other races, destroyed another culture, looted them and more. Yes, they’ve done some really bad things, but that’s the past. They too gave us new discovery, modern medicine, good technologies and more. Blaming another race for your current situation based on what happened to your ancestor is like blaming the dinosaurs for global warming. At the end of the day, all races should stop blaming another race for whatever the current situation is. If blaming can solve this racism problem, then blame on. Yes, there are some bad cops that discriminate people of color, but there are many more good cops that are not racist.
Remember this, not all white people are slaves owners, only a handful of them are rich enough to be landlords. A majority of whites are craftsman, soldiers, miners, builders, artist, cooks, maids, gardener, teacher and more. They too came empty handed, to escape the poverty in Europe. Chinese coolie workers that worked in the railroad are no better, same goes with the Japanese workers in farm harvesting apples. They all came empty handed with a very tough life. The Native Americans was badly treated too, so, stop blaming. Definition of racism – the belief that all members of each race ( any race, not just white) possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.
No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion. People learn to hate and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love for love comes more naturally to human heart than its opposite. – Nelson Mandela
