May we rise to a higher level?

    Excellent article. Who has benefited from racism? Who continues to benefit from racism?

      Excellent questions. Possibly, some of the powerful elite? They benefit when the populace is divided, agitated, and distracted.

      Look at how the abortion issue is constantly stirred up. The religious-right gets so emotional over that one issue, they are blind to the rest of the Republican policy platform – which includes phasing out Social Security and Medicare. The GOP Washington Insiders don’t care about abortion. They care about their campaign donors and the lucrative lobbyist career they will enjoy once they leave office. Fabulous rewards are guaranteed to anyone who helps hand over the SS money coffers to Wall Street.

      Racism is much more complex than the abortion issue. And it isn’t just the Republican Party on the dole. But if the Worldly-Powers-That-Be chose to put the propaganda machine behind racial justice, it would be a done deal in a few years. They don’t, because that would NOT work to the benefit of their exclusive club.
