I truly do believe now in the everyone has an opportunity to be successful. More scenarios than others, but if there is one thing I know is that the "Equality" we have is something I don't see. Do you get the difference in what I am saying? Prime example from this video of President Barack Obama and many more. I want to hear other people's views on Systemic Racism and Race tensions.

More like as long as people keep talking about it. It's like that one story that nobody will just let go. They just can't let it be.

The only way I see race tensions being fixed is if we have some kind of external threat to humanity

I don't know maybe. Not as long as there is race-baiting in politics.

I want to believe this soo bad to my core but I just feel that people will put their pride in skin color before humanity.

I doubt it. There are actual racist but for the most part everything is labled as "racisim" when it actually is not racist.
People are always accused of bing "racist" even when they're not.
Plus people will continue to pull the race card. Some people benifit from it. And there is the victim mentality, the white guilt, the PC'ness, the SJW's, anyone acusing Islam labled as Islamaphobic and racist even though Islam is not a race, etc.

Blacks are often raised to believe whites are racist, Muslims and non Muslims cant really mix so religious differences can lead to racial problems as well, whites are getting sick of what is happening in their countries, Asian nations dont take immigration and dont get along with other Asian nations in some cases, many different races cant get along because of things that happened in the past. So no, i doubt it.

( i know this is about America but the world followes America and all races live in America)

Soo if we stop talking about people race and skin color do you sincerely think that the problem/issue will go away? Now don't get me wrong I feel like it's used in today's world more to cause separation than unification as a prime example in news reporting they will say a black/white cop killed a white/black civilian that is an automatic ploy to cause hate, but if they didn't report it as how I just said do you honestly think people will overlook at the difference of people color of skin?

ha ha yup. Eventually actual white "racists" will exist more because they'll have to fight for their rights and lives(and that would also be racist).

No. Misplaced vengeance, victim-complexes, and the like are tough old birds. Furthermore, the racial tensions aren't just internal; it's also bleeding in from elsewhere, with millions of people crossing to and from the US. Simply trying to "fix" it in the USA won't cut it.

I'm looking forward to this. Maybe then white people will finally chill out when they realize there's nothing to worry over.

I usually don't post on the forums but I will for this.

As long as there are diverse groups of people, their will NEVER be peace.

Some of the reasons behind the "Never" is because most people simply don't care.

That would involve people letting go of the idea that their heritage is tied to their skin color which from the look of things will never go away.
