    Racism In America

    How bad do you guys think racism is in America? Is it an actual, serious issue, that's been boiling for too long? Does the media unfairly play up certain narratives that stir the pot? Or is it somewhere in the middle?

    Based what I've seen over the years on this forum, you might be surprised what some people think.

    I'm more curious to hear other peoples perspective because in my surroundings i have rarely experienced seeing racism except through TV and social media.

    Its rare that I see an instance of it in person, but I live in a very liberal democratic city. Im going to wager that in southern states its much more profound an issue, and the media describes a disgusting america that needs to change.

    Its a very serious issue.

    Hmmm even if it's not as severe these days a lot of how the vountry is shaped is moulded by the blatant level of Racism that existed before, entire communities of people are where they are and interact with other communities the way they do because of the lecherous trickle down.

    a strong contender in terms of discrimination against refugees for sure, yes.

    however every day live racism not as much developed.

    germany has to deal with a lots of racist shit as well. less so maybe in the every day life, or on a much lower level, however we have, going by statistic, around 1 or 2 attacks on refugee camps every day (at least in 2017). thats a tough reality to accept.

    Dunno about America but as a foreigner who's lived in Italy and have relatives that still live there, every day racism is pretty much inexistent. Used to be much more prevalent in the 90s, but not anymore.

    Refugees are another talk all together. All of Europe is going on a frenzy because of them, not just Italy.

    If you look at the statistics for cops shooting unarmed civilians the difference between blacks and whites isn't that different as people would normally say. Unarmed shootings also are a key point of contention amongst many blacks. Just thought that was important to bring up as that had been a heated topic of discussion for a while now with the nfl kneeling.
