Racism should be gone for good because it has impacted our history in bad ways like making little black kids want to be white because they have learned that white people are the good ones and the colored ones are the mean bad one that hurt people.

How would you enforce this?

In every history book they have told the side of the white people always being nice and the colored people being bad, but they have never told the side where colored people suffered because of their skin color or race. Slavery is an example they treated them poorly like animals selling them like they were nothing. Treating African Americans, Chinese, and Latinos just to name a few like trash beating them up getting disrespected because they were a certain race or skin color. They didn't get choose to be that way they get didn't choose what skin color they were or their race. Some people are racist they just learned how to hide it.

Well first of all, history books don't really side with the white man except in the instance of the conquistadors, they also side with the rich man consistently by classifying John Rockefeller as a "philanthropist," because of all the money he gave away, they leave out the part about how every cent he donated was blood money, and he was guilty of a massacre, look up "the Ludlow Massacre," it's like saying Adolf Hitler was a philanthropist because he fixed the German economy. This is a little off topic though.

Also, you didn't answer my question, how would you enforce a ban on racism?

I believe the pro side doesn't know his history well. I don't believe any textbook disregards any race from doing wrong.

Cultures from around the world were imperialized not because of their skin color, but because of money. Obviously, there is clear ethnocentrism and racism in the details of imperialistic cultures.

@Pro's first argument, are you saying that doing illegal activity whilst being jobless, relying on welfare, and blaming this generation for the crimes committed centuries ago (African American sterotype) is better than getting a education, having a job, and avoiding criminal activity? Is it wrong for an African American to stray away from a ghetto?

You can start with the little kids first of all commercials everything they see is telling them to do or act a certain way.
