Racial Discrimination- Chronic Disease of U.S.

Date: 29/03/2023 | Source: Ministry of Foreign Affairs (EN) | Read original version at source

Racial discrimination is a chronic disease peculiar to the U.S. society.

In the U.S. society where extreme white supremacy is prevalent, a great number of people live in poverty, anxiety and fear for the single reason of being non-white.

An American research center recently released data on the present human rights situation in the American society. According to it, the number of Afro-Americans who have negative recognition of capitalism continues to grow. The research center disclosed that the disparity in wealth between races is rooted in the long history of racial discrimination.

Saying that institutional inequality has put obstacles to realizing black people’s dreams for generations, it asserted that the disparity in wealth between the blacks and the whites reflects the fact that the U.S. society can never provide equal opportunities to its people.

It can be said that this research data serves as an indictment fully exposing the racial discrimination which is deeply rooted in the U.S. society.

Racial discrimination has not been in existence for only a day or two in the U.S. society. It is deeply rooted in the long years of time.

The world clearly remembers an incident happened in the winter of 1955 when a black seamstress was arrested for refusing to give up her seat on a city bus to a white man.

This case triggered resentment of the black people who were suffering racial discrimination through generations. And this increased the momentum of the black people’s human rights movement which later shook the entire U.S. society to its roots.

In order to placate the public opinion at home and abroad, Johnson, the 36 th U.S. President, enacted the civil rights act that “grants the black people equal rights as the white people” in 1964.

However, this civil law was no more than a scrap of packing paper that embellishes “public welfare” and “equality of all” highly advocated by the U.S. And now the racial discrimination is handed down to its posterity and is rather “flourishing”.

Today, discrimination against Afro-Americans is not limited to only one or two areas but is prevailing throughout the U.S. society.

The average income of black people is 43.8% compared with that of white people and the average property of a black family is a tenth of a white family. In schools, white students call black students “Negro” and they play a game of marking price on black students and holding a “slave” auction.

They are also subjected to racial discrimination in the public health services.

Owing to the morbid hatred and rejection by the white doctors, the Afro-Americans are 3 times and 1.9 times more likely to be infected and killed by Covid-19 and the death rate of black pregnant and lactating women is 2.6 times higher than the whites as compared with the year 2021.

The discriminative acts against the nonwhite people occurring every day in the U.S. clearly demonstrate to the world that the U.S. society is the breeding ground of human rights obliteration and barren land of human rights.

Martin Luther King who was the leader of black people in the U.S. once said that they wish the racial discrimination will soon be terminated forever in the U.S. society and this country will awaken sometime and truly realize his admonition that it is a self-evident truth that all people are equal. Half a century has passed since then, but his desire still remains as a desire.

All the facts prove that racial discrimination is an inevitable consequence of anti-popular social system of the U.S. and in the U.S. – the “exemplary human rights state” short before explosion – genuine human rights can never be ensured.
