All lives matter, and just about all races/people have been enslaved at one point or another; here are a few examples. the Irish by England, Jewish people by these two at least Egyptian's and Germany; Africans by other Africans, the Polish and Americans; Native Americans by many European powers; the Chinese by Americans. Racism isn't genetically passed down it's normally taught or develops within that person through life and or traumatization. Personally in a nation with all races/people such as America based on how human nature is we will destroy ourselves before any other country if we do not look towards what can we be in the future, instead of what or how it was in the past.

I do hope this is an appropriate topic and I look forward to replies good or bad because then I'll know you at least read this and please just give it some thought.

like spoiled rotten brats some like to riots and demand for things

If I also join the spoiled brats train-- I should be demanding the French, Chinese, Japanese and Americans (myself as well?) for their past sins against my ancestors from thousands of years of slavery and 5-15 years under their control during war time.

I can do that or learn from the past and make a better future like that Toyota's slogan. " MOVING FORWARD ->"

Disagree with this big time. America is facing the truth of human nature head on, as are other racially diverse countries like Germany, England, Canada and others. We are a very young country in the grand scheme of things. We don't live in an artificial bubble like racially pure nations like Japan and many others and we are stronger for it. Wait until space truly starts to run out on Earth and these nations are no longer so "pure", there is gonna be violence unless the whole world grows up.

only a lazy person is racist. it takes a lot not to hate/dislike someone over something, such as height, age, size, skin pigment, religion, etc. everyone is racist, until they start to program themselves past that. it is taught, if we did a study and had group a grow up in a sheltered environment and taught only facts and good in society, and raised group b to hate to their finest and then group 3 as we always have, we'll see group a would be the victims first, then group c and the winners would be group b by default because we taught them the most hate. so, yeah, it's taught, and yes it can be conquered, but it's up to us to do so, until then we're going to be in this repeat rut until we do.

Sadly the only way this is going to happen if we have some sort of external threat like an alien invasion. Its the only way I see us coming together as one species. We could also unite once we realize we are not alone in the universe and we are forced to grow up and start acting like adults once we join the galactic community. Until one of these 2 things happen I don't see any change in our species happening within my lifetime.

It depends on what you mean by "destroying ourselves"

There isn't a day that goes by without war or murder- Self-destruction as far as human beings as a whole is concerned happens on a constant basis and it's not going to change.

If you mean nuclear annihilation of an entire planet, that's anyone's guess. Cuban Missile Crisis could have wiped humanity before many of us were even born. Back in the 80s there was an incident where a false alarm by a Soviet launch detection system almost caused global annihilation.

Nobody knows. The very fact a good possibility exists is unsettling.

What does that world even look like? No racism at all...hmm can't see how you would even know you reached it. If the goal is to eliminate governmental policy of racial genocide (based on your examples), then you don't need to worry about a lot of countries, including most of Europe and the US, we are all set. If you are trying to eliminate bias in the hearts of people against those that are not like them. Never going to happen.

I think even if we were to reduce racism we would still be on the verge of self destruction. People in general, on a individual level are self destructive/abusive (both overtly and subtly) and seemingly love to do so. So even if racism was all but nil in the minds of people our self destructive tendencies are already trickling out and show up in different areas of life, while we're completely ignorant of our own actions and the implications of those actions. As long as the majority of are are psychologically lazy and willfully ignorant we'll lack the awareness to even discern when we're being self-destructive on both a micro (individual scale) and macro (species/world based scale) level.

We as a species are going to die out. Definitely for the best though.

At least the universe will be spared the plague called humanity if that happens before we start to slash and burn all the natural resources threw out our sector.

Racism or any form of prejudice is the work of a small mind. A person of intelligence knows to hate all mankind equally. Destroying ourselves is the only logical outcome from a species as flawed as ours.
