Racism in U.S.
Here’s a little history question for all Americans and scholars of American history.
What is the foundation of the U.S.?
The U.S. was created because of immigrants and exiles. We are the only nation in the whole wide world that is comprised of mulitudes of races. Our population is made up of all the colors God deemd fit for humans. We are a quilt of colors, customs, and cultures.
Another question: Why is there racism in a country founded on immigration?
This inquiry may naive. I am conscious of the natural human tendency to classify, stereotype, and deem themselves superior to others.
My professor recently informed me that there’s more racists in the U.S. than blacks. Memory seemed expand my mind. I suddenly remembered how in Michigan, the other writers (who were white) kept their distance from the only woman with curves on the camp grounds. I recalled how in Argentina how a man darker than me called my friend and I “Caballos negros” (black horses). And I certainly cannot forget the security guards stalking me everytime I shop at Bergdorf Goodman or the Prada store.
