Racism in the past went to extreme measures. There were only blacks, and only whites that were always separated in public activities. The general public majority supported slavery, although the majority of supporters lived in the south. Some white people thought that black people weren’t considers a person that couldn’t get by on their own. They believed that whites were the superior race and dominated all economics. Authorities were the ones to stop protests by the black population, and killed some of the blacks involved in the protest. Today in our culture, the public tries to achieve a world without racism. The government is against all racism, as they try to eliminate it as much as possible. Racism that does occur, mainly happens in third world countries where they assume their cultures are dominate. Racism that has happened in the past are demonstrated in a more extreme measure.
