Racism: poor treatment of or violence against people because of their race; the belief that some races of people are better than others.
Have you noticed we’ve stopped talking about ways to overcome racism? We appear to have allowed the problem to overwhelm any consideration of solutions. Most of our talk these days focuses on making accusations, on race-baiting, and on using race as a way to control or demonize or manipulate others. Moron talk in the NFL consumes the air waves, not as a basis for exploring remedies, but merely for entertainment value. Racism is no longer a social ill. It’s a political weapon.
