This is why "Man" is very self destructive. We have the ability to think and rational our own justification for Greed and self entitlement. History of "Man" has always been about this. Sure there is compassion and other traits that are good but in the end Greed and Self entitlement is very powerful to ignore.

It's our nature and this is our instinct. There is no right or wrong, it is who we are. But within each group of "Man" they form a clan (race), who have their own instinct that define them as who they are (color of skin, hair, eyes, etc).

You strip away color, hair, eyes, physical differences and the bottom line is we still have the same traits but because we look at someone physically many of us cannot comprehend beyond this. We simply see a black, yellow, white, Asian, poor, rich.

It's really a simple concept but yet people will try to rationalize their actions.

For USA, their greatest strength is their ability to accept cultures from all different races but at the same time, it's one of the hardest nations to live in due to society pressures.

Pressures steam from simply living within your race/culture groups. Each group will project their views/justifications and influence your choices. Because of this, you will always have racism, not because we are born with it, because we allow ourselves to live within the same boundaries as animals.

Lions hang out with Loins
Tigers hang out with tigers
Monkey hang out with monkeys

No different than our natural instinct to be with other people of our kind.

You want to break racism, you are asking the impossible, unless we can shed our physical attributes.

How can we make it better? It's called compassion but compassion is at an all time low and even with compassion ultimately "Man" will still gravitate towards their own "Clans"

I don't call it an ability;  rather a need for cheap workers to do the jobs the locals didn't want.
That was some years back, now with automation them people are getting a pain...

Blacks in the United States comprise only 13% of the population yet commit more than 50% of all recorded violent crimes. It would be much higher if the unrecorded ones were included.

American football is an exciting competitive game. It is a game of great physical prowess and violence. Almost 70% of all NFL players are Black. Blacks have shown a proclivity for activities of physical force and violence. Their ancestors in Africa enslaved, then sold them to White Plantation owners in America seeking labor for their Cotton, Tobacco and Indigo fields. America was not particularly evil in this action, the times were different and humanity had not yet evolved. Slaves were a common sight in many parts of the world then.

But this is the unfortunate circumstances of how Blacks arrived in America.

The core reason for why America developed into the largest economy and greatest incubator for the development of Science, Technology, Medicine and Sociology is due exactly to the contributions of English speaking White Anglo Saxon Protestant (WASP) people. Those people do not possess the physical prowess of Blacks, thus they had to learn to use their brains and civility to get along.

Blacks subconsciously see physical force as a solution to problems; Whites don't. The entire notion of codified rules, regulations and customs (Laws) were mostly created by Whites as a means of homogenizing standards of conduct that would allow all people to peacefully coexist. We each give up a little for the collective good of society.

But because Blacks have an instinctive physical response to stressors, they perceive Laws to be a White man's creation which doesn't apply to them. So when the police order them to stop, they see that as a stressor from the White man. They either want to fight or flee instead of just stop. They see the White man as being unfair to them, foistering his unnatural Laws on Blacks. He discriminates against Blacks.

White people also don't like the stress brought on by laws but they're far more understanding of the need for them than the more physical, “might is right” Blacks.

Nobody discriminates against Blacks because of the color of their skin, it's all about their behavior.

I don't think that's correct, America has seen the illegal immigrant population swell to the point there are no long ANY manual labor jobs for Americans. Americans unable to find jobs in their own country is the reason Donald Trump was elected. He was the only one to face this problem squarely.

America is not looking for cheap labor, it's looking for jobs for it's own citizens
