Again, Raavi, I believe you're simply ignorant to the truth...
Unless we're somehow able to hit a giant "reset" button that suddenly equalized everyone at square one, we'll be living with the ghosts of our racist pasts for decades to come. Institutionalized discrimination is far more insidious than you seem to accept.
There's nothing wrong with being an idealist, but you can't found it on ignorance.
I'm not alone in my strive for an equal society many individuals from all kinds of different backgrounds share my beliefs and hopes.
During times of slavery and black oppression, people of colour as they were then not so affectionally named, were oppressed to a vile extent, yet they kept striving for rights and freedoms equal to those of their very white oppressors, they fought for equality not a race based divide. But whilst there might be equality in the sense of freedoms and rights to a certain extent. There is no equality in our perception, which is a cancer on our modern day society. Black and white people are still considered inherently different, which brings a plethora of unnecessary socio-economic ramifications and engenders a hate culture.
"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."
- Martin Luther King Jr.
Did I say it's a matter of flipping a switch? No, I very much realise that it's embroiled in our today's society and that true equality is a gradual process. As was and still is generalising tolerance when it comes to the LGBT community. But just because it's not easy doesn't mean we should simply ignore it. Rome wasn't build in a day.
Like Nelson Mandela ones said.
"No one is born hating another person because of the colour his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
