Racism exists all over the world but why is it so prevalent in the US?

I’ve watched a lot of documentaries regarding this and due to the recent protests it’s appearing a lot on the various feeds. What made me post this is that I’ve just watched a video of a grown man defacing the BLM painting in Washington (I think). What makes the country like this when it’s supposed to be a world super power?

There’s 328 million people here. Millions of them are a respective race. Obviously some of them are going to have a collective racist mindset. But racists are a minority. The media makes it seem more prevalent than it really is because positive news doesn’t get views.

外围体育投注It isn’t. The news intentionally makes it seem horrible so we hate each other more. Real world experience in the US is the quickest way to see the truth. The MSM is pure evil.

The rest of the world is exactly the same, yes some countries it may be less frequent. Asia is bad, due to the different sects, races, languages religions.. its crazy how racist some people are.

外围体育投注You’re practically being brainwashed to think this way. I recommend doing your research and looking deeper into stuff you hear from any news source whether it’s social media, TV, or even just the Apple news feed on your phone. You’re being fed a fake narrative by people with their own agenda.

外围体育投注Are you American? It could be that you are just more aware of what's happening in your own country. Other places have lots of racism as well.

America's racism is quite intense because the country was formed from the Atlantic slave trade and the expulsion of indigenous people. Anti-Catholic and therefore anti-Irish sentiment was high because of the Protestant background of the country, and later on eugenics got very popular in the USA (eugenics is the "science" behind the Nazi's extermination policies). They were attacked by Japan which led to the use of internment camps, and their wars with Korea and Vietnam did not help anti-Asian racism. Such historical events mean racist actions and beliefs were very formative for the country. But almost all countries have their own grim racist histories that also influence their present day reality.

外围体育投注Sometimes racist actions (like slave trading and mass murder of indigenous populations) can make your industry more powerful because you're using racism as an excuse to exploit people's labour and land. So it could be that America's high GDP and influence is BECAUSE of its racist past, not in spite of it.

Opinion: something about enslaving black people, using the bible to justify it and christianity being still a big thing there.

And also that America is a melting pot of various ethnics, its more about the contrast than the actual prevalence. Example: Racism is a thing in Russia too. There are just not many black people.

There are alot of social and economical problems to it aswell in the US, which are caused by racism but also the racism feeds on the problems, devils circle.

外围体育投注But thats my opinion/view on it, Im no expert and also could be completely wrong.
