Racism is a real problem we face today in the USA.
As is the accusation of racism.
Racism is a toxic ideology, yet both the Left and the Right champion racism. The saddest part is, racism and the science of racism can help shed light on subjects of debate, however all of the science behind racism has been thrown away and deemed 'unethical' even though it is also true, like the genetic differences between Caucasians and Africans (on average) are seen as 'racist' even though they exist.
But let's focus on the toxicity. Today, we've got hordes of black people who think they're being racially persecuted by whites (used to be extremely true, but today is mostly not-true, yet still exists a little, as well as the after-effects of past racism still exist, for sure). What is their response to this? Champion racism against white people. Demand over-representation of non-whites, demand more opportunities and more education for non-whites, demand that entirely white things be washed away (such as monuments depicting all white people), so on and so forth.
And this is so horrible, because white people and black people really could unite to fix the problems black people face today thanks to the racism of the 18th-20th centuries caused, yet black people are taught and encouraged to just have an anti-white agenda, further dividing whites from blacks and therefore lessening the possibility of black people getting support from the majority.
And then we've got white people. Are us white people responsible for slavery? Meh, not really. We weren't creating/selling slaves, we were just buying slaves, and then we ended up freeing them all and giving them things, like entire countries of their own (Caribbean) as well as equal rights across the West. That being said, is it still true that black people (in the USA) are dealing with poverty and other things they couldn't stave off due to racism in the 18th-20th centuries, and we really should work on correcting those things, on helping give more opportunities to poor blacks while also not doing things like damning white people or forcing over-representation of blacks. I mean, we've got one black supreme court justice, and he disagrees with everything pro-black the Democrats have done for a long time now, always stating the fact that the black community faces a massive problem in that black students are accepted and graduate at a higher rate than their equivalent white students, and then fail significantly more than their equivalent white counterparts in the work place because they're literally less-fit for what they do than their white counterpart, which makes everyone think to themselves, 'is that black guy here because he's good or because of affirmative action? I better not depend on that guy.'
Whites have a lot of anti-black tendencies, for sure. But that being said, they're not entirely unreasonable. Sure, there are some white people who straight up hate black people, and are proud of it, and the same is true about blacks who hate whites. But more than anything, the entire white USA race feels attacked, and they feel attacked because black people have a lot of power in the USA and are wielding that power to demand to be given more stuff, be it money, or food, or jobs, or awards, or pretty much anything they could earn on their own but demand to earn, instead, mostly due to a fear that they're being under-cut due to racism.
Black people are scared of white people because they think we're racist and that we wield all the power, which is only half-true. And white people are pissed off at black people, because they see them wielding both power and racism, and they see it as blatantly racist and corrupt, yet since 2010 onward it became taboo for any white person to claim racism against a non-white person, while claiming racism against a white person is widespread and the accusations are assumed as true, similar to what we see in feminism with false rape accusations; they're always believed to be true, and everybody supports the victim and damns the accused before their fair trial, and then the accused are just thrown under the bus and their innocence becomes insignificant as they become a scapegoat for western fear.
And Obama sure as fuck didn't help with any of this, since racism on both sides seemingly skyrocketed during Obama's extremely divisive and pro-shitty-activist 8 years.
