Yes, Ill have your topic sent to you shortly.
No, there aren't enough to justify the massive outcries of racism in the U.S.
I'm not gonna send it to you for a debate, but a great example is our criminal justice system. Most of this is from the war on drugs. Since many poor areas have a higher concentration of minorities, it is easier to arrest them and convict them partly because they can't afford bail or good attorneys. Of course, all of this is unintended, but it is SYSTEMIC racism.
The United States for the most part is NOT racist. All those sensationalist headlines decrying the U.S. as a terrible white supremacist racist nation are disgraceful and inaccurate. On the same token, however, it is ridiculous to deny that racism is not present in the U.S. Rarely do we see violent racism in America, rather, we see systemic racism. Blacks stuck in perpetual poverty, blacks more likely to be profiled by the justice system, blacks more likely to be arrested for the same crimes committed by their white counterparts, black names reducing the chance of a resume being accepted, etc. All of these things represent the systemic, deep racism that is still prevalent in our country.
The police are doing their job. If a heavyset white person threatened the Ferguson cop, he would be just as dead as that other idiot. Pants up, don't loot, kids. You will see that a lot of the unrest comes from deindividualized individuals who slip in and loot the stores in the unrest. They are crying "racism" to simply get away with some really stupid things. A more direct and personal example would be the time I was at Six Flags. Three guys cut in front of everyone, and I was in the same compartment as them. As we launched, the guy running things had his supervisor yell at him. We had a good time anyway, because it probably didn't have to do with us, or that was what my party of three thought. The ride ended, and staff were waiting for them. One of the morons attempted to bluster out with, "You're doing this to me because I'm black." The staff member's response could be summed up as "No, I'm doing this because you broke the rules. Come with me or there will be trouble." The moron attempted to resist, too, but got his sorry posterior tazed for his trouble. Moral of the story: Maybe it's not racism. It could be because you're breaking rules and the guy who you're calling racist is following SOP. He doesn't want to hear it; you broke the rules, and he's here to escort you out, please don't come back.
