Racism in America: Just a few rotten Apples?

That's something different than usual in America, when a Black is killed during a police operation, make the least of the reactions of four former presidents clearly. This time you do not left it at that, to Express Regret over the "tragic" death of George Floyd's and to pray for the bereaved. Barack Obama is approximately expressed, for millions of black Americans, it was as "painful as unbearable normality", if you would be treated by the law enforcement authorities "different". George W. Bush asked the question, how to could end the systemic racism in American society.

many Republicans shun in Congress, the notion of racism. You do not deny the finding that the fear of a police stop, is a constant companion in the life of a black, not a white American. You describe the symptoms, but the diagnosis of refuse, has a single reason: Donald Trump. The President is fighting against a system debate. He speaks of "a few rotten Apples", as it'll give you everywhere. Prejudices were to fight; but will it not heal wounds, to call millions of Americans falsely as racists.

The debate about racism in the American police is, first, a statistical interpretation of the fight. The lawsuit, for example, be a confrontation of the guards, with African-Americans, as measured by their share of the population, a disproportionately high, it is held, contrary to the note, the number of crimes committed by Blacks, it is also. It sounds back: While Black stopped constantly on the street and on drugs would be controlled, could sniff white students in their houses unmolested cocaine. The debate is quickly basically: The police complete still basically the order you have received at the time of their Foundation: they protect the interests of the Privileged and a concern for peace.

No Silence more

With this rest it's over now. It is something in motion. The children of those who want to leave America, not bad talk, are no longer willing to. On some protest marches as many white took part as black Americans. In question no less than the American Credo: work hard and take advantage of your freedom and the Rest will sort itself out. The empirical evidence would have been offered earlier occasion to doubt it. But it was a long, off-the-record: If decades of position and active support for Minorities after the civil though little changed for the Better, it might not give as reasons connected with the peculiarities of the black minority together? That group that came in search of a better life in the country? The replica of the Black today is this: 200 years, in which it is only to the advantage of White was gone, not had that with the formalistic equality of opportunity to correct, especially in a society in which wealth, especially inherited (and not developed) is.

it is True, of course, Not everything can be explained with the System. How hard it is to solve problems within the black population group, had to take Obama once noted. As a presidential candidate, he dared to say that black men should take more responsibility for your life, for example in the education of their children. As a result, the civil rights activist Jesse Jackson accused him of, he, Obama, knocking over his own people. In fact, there is a need for more Afro-American role models that teach adolescents in social hotspots, that there are more ambitious goals in life, rather than to try to get into the prison.

Trump doesn't take no Council

Need only a basic police reform, but also an honest debate about the continuing structural inequalities and the principle of self-responsibility. Trump has no interest in it. He considers the speeches of his predecessors as a campaign to help the Democrats – and as an attempt by white America to further marginalize. Trump is the voice of the "angry white men", the white, angry, believe, Obama, you want "their" America to take. The incumbent understands itself as the advocate of the guards, and as a "law and order"President. More than occasional corrections will not be with him.
