I am a firm believer that these groups and ideals are what seperates and causes racism.

Racism stems from family background or self belief the fact of the matter is. Nothing can truly solve racism. You can't fix it or make it worse. As long as everybody has features that make them different from someone else racism will never die. But maybe we can make the situation better by teaching our children that everyone is equal and even if everyone looks different from each other we don't have to treat anyone any less different.

i agree with you whole heartedly on how we raise our children but by allowing these groups to continue ie kkk, black panthers, black lives matter, lgbtq ect. all seperate people now i understand 1st amendment rights but as a whole it has create more division rather than understanding. American people as a whole have no issues with races and difference we all work well together and live as neighbors well i think this whole deal is more of a socio-economic issue with different areas of the country which means we need to focus more on peoples rights as a whole

Please elaborate or explain what you mean by "American People as a whole have no issues with races". Anyway i'm not saying these type of groups have nothing to do with discrimination or racism. I'm saying its the other way around. You should not be saying "Does black lives matter, white privlage, ect. perpetuate racism?"; You should be asking does racism perpetuate black lives matter, white privilege, ect. Your asking the question like these groups came first. it was racism itself that formed these groups. Truth is theres no way of stopping racism. you can't make it worse or better it is what it is. The human is a complicated species we will try and hurt/hate another person faster than we will love another.

when i say that American people as a whole have no issues with race i mean that usually its some other reason why someone doesnt like tbe person next to them its not truely because of the color of thier skin its just a cope out for something that is really the issue. And i disagree that these groups are caused by racism they are caused by people blaming race for other issues ie cops shooting people in poor neighborhoods that crimes are predominate in. WW2 Jews had control of the wealthy jobs and Germans were getting they short end of the stick so we as a group need to hate another group for that so if everyone is equal on the rights given to them and no one group of people is above the next. Dont have all black colleges unless you have all white, all mexican, all asian, and all indian and so forth. By creating groups based on race you cause seperation no matter how good the cause. As far as people always hating i believe hate is taught humans are naturally selfish but they are not born naturally hating people its something taught by a person or by an experience that they had that they decided to blame on race.
