Stop the Nonsense
Everyday you hear about another racist situation whether it was on the news or seeing it on Twitter. It can range from Caucasian police officers treating African American citizens poorly, to the Caucasians getting treated poorly by the African Americans. It’s all one big misunderstanding, the reason why it comes down to people thinking it’s racist is because the people make it that way. Racism and segregation ended decades ago. People need to accept the fact that everyone is equal. There is no difference from a white beating up another white or a white beating up another African American. Skin color does not express the way we are or the way we act. The political point of the civil rights movement came with the passage of the Civil Rights Act in 1964, which outlawed segregated public accommodations and banned racial discrimination in hiring, union membership, and projects receiving federal funds. Other important civil rights legislation followed, including the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the Civil Rights Act of 1968, which banned discrimination in the same and rental housing. Even as those major legislative goals were being met, the civil rights movement was fragmenting. It had come to rely primarily on the energy of young activist, many of whom began to drift away in the mid-1960s. In addition, some militants, including Stokely Carmichael and other leaders of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, had become increasingly disenchanted with white participation in the movement and began organizing themselves around the concept of black power.
