Racism and ethnic discrimination in the United States was one of the biggest issues there could be. Some people in the U.S. continue to have some prejudices against other races. "Legally sanctioned racism imposed a heavy burden on Native Americans, African Americans, Asian Americans, and Latin Americans." When the U.S. discovered the full extent of Nazi Germany's genocidal plan against Jews, white Americans became more willing to examine their own country's racism. But why did after they discover something its all of a sudden important. There were crimes happening during the Holocaust too. The Jews had also lived in the countries that the Nazi Germany would occupy during World War II. Racism in the U.S. has also been related to the issue of slavery. Racism is still today going on. People all around the world including the U.S. all have racist people, its like racism never goes away. Before now i thought that racism was only towards the blacks. I now know that not only racism went towards the blacks but also to the Jewish people. But the blacks were the slaves.
