    whoa. are you saying whites are the only racist ones in America? When California separated their black and Hispanic inmates they didn’t do that because the two groups were getting along well, they did is because they were killing each other. There’s racism from and against whites, blacks, Asians, Indians, blacks, natives, Arabs, and Hispanics, that we see all the time on TV, the internet, in song lyrics, and in real life. White racism is most easily noticed because they hold the highest number of positions of authority (its tragic yet true) But Id say America is definitely above average in the world (especially if you don’t count the countries with 95%+ of one race) look at Israel, South Africa, Afghanistan, China, Greece, and Southern Italy.

    it is really messed up how the police are doing basically whatever they want because of their authority. racism is a big part of the U.S. and it has not really stopped. Too many whites hate minorities, and discriminate on them. Even blacks, who basically came at the time they did. its really stupid because even the whites are immigrants as well, this land did not belong to anybody but the natives, which they abused, murdered, etc.

    Is loyalty really a democratic value? seems like more of a totalitarian value to me. in a true democracy your only obligated to be loyal to your state (not the way Americans misuse the term mean province)as long as you believe it is just. We tend to assume that any political values we find appealing to be democratic, where this isn’t always true. I’m not bashing democracy and am of the opinion that we could use a lot more in our government. I’m simply saying political and economic systems arnt that black and white.
