Racism is a very crucial topic in 2017 people talk about it almost every day going back in to the American civil war it is much worse than you may think. People who were not white were treated like rag dolls told what to do, bring or they feared the consequences of dying. The largest population of races other than white that was affected by this were the blacks. African Americans resisted slavery by every means possible, including work slowdowns, sabotage, arson, mass flight, and rebellion. Slave masters feared for their lives, and not without reason, for domestic slaves often poisoned their masters. But Blacks weren’t the only people who were discriminated during the Civil war. Legally or socially sanctioned privileges and rights were given to white Americans but denied to Native Americans, African Americans, Asian Americans, and Hispanic and Latino Americans. European Americans were granted exclusive privileges in matters of education, immigration, voting rights, citizenship, land acquisition, and criminal procedure over periods of time extending from the 17th century to the 1960s. However, non-Protestant immigrants from Europe; particularly Irish people, Poles, and Italians, suffered xenophobic exclusion and other forms of ethnicity-based discrimination in American society, were vilified as racially inferior, and were not considered fully white. In addition, Middle Eastern American groups like Jews and Arabs have faced continuous discrimination in the United States, and as a result, some people belonging to these groups do not identify as white. East and South Asians have similarly faced racism in America. During the civil war, white people banned together to form an anti-Black party called the KKK, short for Ku Klux Klan these people were devoted to abolishing the African Americans from the United States most of these people were the southerners. There were also private created by the blacks to fight against the white racist community an example of one of these was the Black panther they were a group that fought for the same rights as the white people in American.
Now in 2017 people may think that racism has just gone away after the civil war but racism across the world still exist what is going on right now in the world is that we have the case of Donald Trump who is banning Muslims from migrating to the USA because he stated that he they are all terrorists and they will destroy our country. In the United States, the KKK still exists people have been caught doing their anti-black ceremonies and they are mostly arrested for this. Racism has changed it has become less severe and less harmful towards specific races but we can still find poverty in third world countries.
This is how racism has changed and as you see its not as serious and hopefully we can get rid of racism forever
