Let me come directly to the point: America today is not a racist country.
Are there racists walking around? Yes, but they come in all colors.
The phenomena that we see in certain cities like Los Angeles where black gang members and Mexican gang members are shooting it out on the streets against each other and continuing that warfare in California prisons, is not because of white racism.
Black on black murders and Hispanic on Hispanic murders cannot be blamed on white racism.
And shame on all of us when we ignore these murders to focus on the relatively rare cases where minorities are shot by cops almost always in circumstances that are justified as just happened in Berkeley, Missouri a St Louis neighborhood.
If Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton want to lead marches, they should be marching in Chicago, where black on black murder is at a deadly high.
Where are the protests against that?
