I don’t understand today’s society. People (of all races) are allowed to do more then they ever have. Women have rights, people of different races are allowed/capable of doing/becoming whatever they want, anyone/everyone is allowed to change anything about their bodies, and no one is forced to do anything they don’t want.(excluding violent/illegal actions) Racism is not solely directed towards one race anymore. The actual definition of racism is “ rac·ism noun: prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against a person or people on the basis of their membership in a particular racial or ethnic group, typically one that is a minority or marginalized.” Did white people have severely racist views in the past? = Yes. Do some white people still hold racist ideologies? =Yes. However racism can be aimed in multiple different directions including at white people. Racism and hate and discrimination are things that are taught/learned. If you have racist views and your child sees this growing up they will/could possibly develop the same/similar views. The world has changed and peoples views have also changed but if people stay stuck in the past then we’ll never be/do better. White people of today didn’t do what happened hundreds of years ago just like black people are not treated like they were hundreds of years ago. Is there still discrimination yes but it isn’t as prevalent as it was and unfortunately it feels like the world is trying to flip the roles and it feels wrong. We’re destroying our history in the name of “justice” but that’s not it it’s just chaos and destruction for the hell of it. Also the burning of the American flag is ridiculous America didn’t hurt you a group of people did! The country didn’t do wrong by you so why are you disrespecting it?

They never said there’s nothing wrong with peoples rights however I agree that “America” is not what hurts people but the people themselves. I mean think about it go to any other country and try to get the government to fund your daily life… also Christianity has always been harmful and not just in America because if you think about it women/men of medieval/Victorian era were burned alive,hung,drowned, and even dismembered if even suspected of “witchcraft” but that’s only the case because Christ ...show more

america does hurt people. immigrants, marginalized groups, religions other than Christianity, etc. there are also still many problems with rights. women can do more than they would've done 100 years ago, but there's still deep rooted misogyny that we would need to completely rewrite society and mannerism to get rid of. gay and trans panic defense is legal in most states and says that a straight could kill a gay person and get away with it simply because they're gay. or trans. black people have every right to be suspicious of white people because of deep-rooted racism. society is nowhere near perfect. it's better than it was 100 years ago, but we still have things we need to improve. thank you for listening to my ted talk.

The problem isn't that it's better than before, the problem is that it's still going on and pretty strong. If you're a white man then I can understand you don't see it. Racism is still extremely present, so yes there's no more slavery and killing poc isn't allowed anymore but hey... there's so much going on against them. Getting beaten up, insulted, refused services..Same for women. The fight has been going for centuries so i can understand the anger going stronger every times. You're right about one point, it's not the country to blame, it's the people.
