The future of American racism

The future of American racism | Conflict And Prejudice | Scoop.it

 

Note: The following is mostly based on chapter 14 of “Race in North America” (2012) by Audrey and Brian D. Smedley.


Racism in the US is always changing but changes slowly. That means the near future will be pretty much the same, but the longer term it will bring change.

 

American racism will have to somehow adjust to:
 

Japan as a country fully the equal of the US and Britain.Asian Americans scoring higher on IQ tests.The Black middle-class and Blacks in important positions.Immigration from Asia and Latin America pouring into the US, bringing millions of people who do not fit into the old black-and-white boxes.Multiracial identities, particularly those who are half White and half Asian or Latino. It not only challenges the idea that race determines culture and behaviour, but also makes one’s “race” harder to determine and therefore less useful.Barack Obama, whose very person goes against everything most Americans think they know about race. He is multiracial. He looks Black but culturally is like Dorothy of “The Wizard of Oz”: a White person from Kansas. American racism is incapable of making sense of him – thus all the Birther and Secret Muslim stuff.The Human Genome Project – which left only 0.1% of the genome for scientific racism.

Kng Jiahao's insight:

Racism in the United States has always been active, but when Barack Obama stood up as President it all changed. And Example of racism as prejudice before Obama, was the Rosa Parks Story. Racism has dropped in amounts but racism is also the primary prejudicial cause of conflict. It is also pleasing to hear that the amount of racism is decreasing.

Kng Jiahao's insight:

The owner of this chinese restaurant was so inconsiderate as to ban people of other races because he doesn't like them and it is somwhat implying them as a dog, and even after being forced to take this down he showed no remorse. i can't believe that a guy like that existed

I believe that everyone should be treated equally regardless of their nationality. Ongoing maritime disputes should not result in the citizens of the countries involved being deprived of the right to dine at the restaurant. I am glad that the owner has removed the sign.

Tse Min's curator insight, July 14, 2014 11:15 AM

I have only one word to describe the store owner, the one who put on this sign in their restaurant ----uncivilized. I wonder has the thought of that this sign board would actually agitate the people and tourist who is actually willing to pay money to dine in his restaurant ever occurred in his mind. No doubt, I am sure that this post sparked many outrage comments from people who saw this sign board.

Kng Jiahao's insight:

This image may not have a lot of words but it says a lot, and that is the fact that we pick up racism and racism is not in out blood. So, if we can discard all these things and accept others who are of a different skin tone, it would be truly beautiful.

If people learn racism, where from?

Ho jun rong's curator insight, July 13, 2014 8:55 AM

If only all parents taught their children to look at people's hearts and not their color

They say love conquers all. But can individuals overlook differences like race to fall in love in the first place?

Kng Jiahao's insight:

Just because people are of another colour, they refuse to make out, and some even apply to those of similar colour, i think this is shocking as i have hardly heard of same race rejecting others even in a relationship.
