Racism is everywhere and we all have a little of bit of it in ourselves. You can't deny it. If you have a particular experience, good or bad, with someone whose different from you, the first impression with someone of the similar race would typically be a generalization. It's part of how the human mind gauges and interprets scenarios. We don't know about other people, but we try to make estimations based off of previous experiences. So yes, it is indeed ingrained in the human condition. The only way to work around racism is with respect and understanding, but we all know here that people generally aren't comfortable with doing either one.

Pop shots are common. Taking shots from rooftops or windows on cop cars, and a lot of times, subway cars. That's what I'm talking about.

You can't see who did it.

I don't believe that's what OP is saying. Of course racism exists in every country, but it may not be as big as the media portrays it. America has indeed had a long history racism, against Blacks, Mexicans, Asians, Irish, Eastern Europeans, everybody... Modern America is no where near as bad as we've been in the past.

That's basically it. That's basically what OP is trying to say. And it is as big as the media portrays it.
How's it not racist, when media is desperately trying to justify a black victims murder by saying they were a thug, they smoked weed, they stole something, edit or use a specific picture of them on Facebook out of the hundreds to "confirm" this person was a thug & deserved to die? If they happen to have a criminal record, they'll post that too, I assure you.
If the murderer happens to be white, they'll say like he was mentally ill or say "he saved a puppy once". They dehumanize the victim and humanize the murderer. If that isn't racism and white privilege at its finest then I don't know what is.
Media wants to deny cases like this wasn't about race so bad.
Edit:
Also its not just America. Europe as well. Europeans are just as bad. Only difference between them is that America was built around racism.


Alot European countries wealth and power came from destroying and profiting off of foreign colonies in Africa, Southeast Asia, and South America.

Everyone, it's great that you're having such a lively conversation, but please trim your quote chains so as not to create long quote pyramids. Don't just hide them under spoiler tags -- that just makes them even more unreadable over time

I've just trimmed a few, and when I refresh the page there are more

Go to the worst neighborhoods in NYC at night and you'll see what I mean. Me personally, I don't live in anything close to a ghetto, but life there is terrible for both the residents and cops.

Terrible. Like inhumanely bad.

It's New York... just visiting there for a few weeks was enough for me to know what shit is like there. I grew up in the ghetto so I know how that looks too.

Why the hell would I want to?

I find it really funny when people who live in Middle of Nowhere, Boringsville think us city folk are out to spin tall tales.

The police are roaming targets. It's a game to kids with guns. The media and the police themselves screwed themselves over. It's just how it is.

You kill one guy and a whole city'll turn on you. You kill dozens, and even more will.

Only a matter of time til NYC erupts into riots and I for one will be on a plane outta here when that happens. I'm on neither side.

It does have a racism problem.

But it isn't just towards blacks.


Also towards my people. Mexicans.

It's towards every race. Some just have it worse than others.
