This is no mistake. This is the result of centuries of misinformation and apathy.

We do not live in a post-racial society. (The created concept) of race is very real in a world where ratios of poverty, jobs, quality of schools, leadership positions, health, opportunity for the arbitrary stamp of citizenship, and criminal arrests are different among ethnic groups because of socially constructed division of groups due to human variance. There is beauty and knowledge to be gained from the various ethnicities of the human race; yes, most of us are technically "mixed" in the colloquial sense of the word. However, that sure doesn't mean that all homo sapiens are treated equally or fairly.

Racism is more than an isolated incident. Racism is more than teen-aged, prepubescent girls being raped by white slaveowners and white coworkers without a trial or sentence. Racism is more than ridiculing a Hispanic woman for speaking Spanish in a country built by immigrants, in a state that used to be Mexico. Racism is more than a deplorable slur, used to ridicule black men before murdering them. Racism is more than giving Racism is more than unequal pay, a burning cross, a knife, a dirty look, a Confederate flag. Racism is government-sanctioned tests that sterilized Black women. Racism is more arrests for dark-skinned Black fathers, husbands, brothers, and friends. Racism is denial of resources. Racism is no inheritance because your great-grandfather was the enslaved rather than the en-slaver. Racism is the internment of American-born humans who looked Japanese and innocent Japanese people, without trial, without adequate warning -- with fear. Racism is unleashing the most destructive weapon of mankind's existence on two Japanese cities to "preserve American lives." Racism is slaughtering the entire Native American population in the name of fear, deception, and supremism. Racism is giving them a paltry portion of the land the cultivated. Racism is systematic in the United States. Racism is policies that keep racial minorities in poverty and prison in highly disproportionate rates to their White counterparts. There is no "reverse racism." Racism is judging a White person as racist because of the actions of their mother, father, or grandparents. However, it is not "reverse racist" or "racist" to simply state facts.

This contributes to the appalling rate of obesity and death for minorities.

Minorities in the US have higher death rates than Whites. No doubt, this is one of the reasons.

There is still a wealth gap. There will always be, until the evils of misinformation and apathy are purged.

When will our police system be purged of the infection of racism?
