    𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗨𝗻𝗶𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝗦𝘁𝗮𝘁𝗲(𝘀) 𝗼𝗳 𝗛𝘂𝗺𝗮𝗻𝗶𝘁𝘆 America is in a state of deep scrutiny. So is humanity. Today’s America presents the future state of humanity: If the world advances the way America is advancing, we will end up being divided between two blocs that hate each other in every sense-ideologically, approach to life, culture, education, and every other way. It will be impossible to connect the adversaries, just as it is impossible to connect the Democrats with the Republicans in today’s divided United States. As things are, there will be no calm. It seems as though things have gone out of control, but they haven’t. It is simply what happens when the ego wants to govern and will not hear of anything less than that. It does not want connection; it wants domination. It may be horrifying to watch, but we are merely witnessing the natural process. When everything revolves around who has more and who has less, and when the ego keeps intensifying, we come to a state where the ego wants everything, and to leave absolutely nothing to the other side. This is what you get when you don’t educate people. It doesn’t matter how much you invest in aid packages and relief programs, when the ego comes to a state of all or nothing, nothing helps. Therefore, we should thank America for the example it is giving us, at its own expense. We should thank the American people for setting an example that demonstrates what our future will be like unless we achieve unity among us. In other words, if we don’t achieve a united state in humanity, humanity will become like today’s United States: an assortment of nations, colors, races, and faiths that hate each other to death, and do everything they can to cater to their hatred.

    It's not about getting offended on other people's behalf, it's about recognising something that's wrong; recognising that staying silent in the face of something wrong makes you implicit in that wrongdoing by allowing self-validating echo chambers to form; not being too proud to realise when you've been misled and gradually been manipulated and radicalised to adopt an ideology you don't actually believe in, just by default - just because that's what inevitably happens in a 2 party, partisan system if the side that has your allegiance shifts to the extreme. Don't fix your cognitive dissonance with denial and parroting slogans like mantras until you actually believe them. Be willing to change your opinion when given more evidence. Challenge what you are told to believe; what your leaders say. Fact check with MULTIPLE unbiased sources, not 1 partisan source that spins everything to exploit the fact that as a human you are resistant to change, giving you excuses to choose the laziest course of action which is to just go with the flow of the herd you're already in, no matter where that flow is leading. If a belief system stands up to a rigorous challenge then by all means, believe it. Racism and bigotry do not stand up to that challenge. If they do, you weren't really challenging them.

    Trump sorry is not a racist . Trump received more minority votes than Biden did by 3x ! He hired more minorities before he was president and also pardoned more minorities than any other president before him . He also is the only president to get involved in helping lower income communities . He also made peace in the Middle East . But I know someone who’s mentor was Thadius a well known kkk member and he even wrote a eulogy for him and still talks highly about him I’ll give you a hint : rhymes with “hidin” . Here’s a fact: Harvard also stated all ppl have black dna but maybe this study is not conducive for the pathetic reason of your dividing agenda.

    Proud of these guy's.... I was raised in the south so I know I had to reprogram my brain when I became an adult and left high School especially when I raised my children not to be racist and to not use the N word. I know I'm a lot different than a lot of people in the South though I was blessed with a Christian mother that taught me the truth and gave me a strong foundation to stand on (God/Jesus) after she left me... so proud to say that I'm a child of God and so are every one of you no matter what... color you are! no matter what... kind of car you drive! no matter what... kind of house you live in! we all are Kin! Please stop sparking deceitful controversy! The world has enough to deal with... How bout some uplifting and giving.... Make better use of your time... Pray for America ❤️💧💙

    That mindset that Trevor talks about and then wondering if you’re correct in what you believing in now as oppose to your previous thought is something we should all strive to achieve. Nothing is 100% concrete and even us (the minority) sometimes believe stereotypes or think it’s ok to say certain things when in reality we just contribute to the ever growing cycle of prejudicism. Speaking with honestly like he said is the best way to understand the problem and fix the issues.

    Lol when most people say we must be tolerant, what they mean is white people must be compliant and that we should feel guilty for being who we are, nothing wrong with us wanting a homogeneous country. POC will never stop demanding from us regardless of how much the system uplifts them. I'd rather be a white Nationalist than a self hating white liberal. Also white Nationalism has nothing to do with White supremacy, though they intertwine in some areas, they are still very distinct.

    Lol to not think there can't be 30% of white people being discriminated in 2020 where people are so eager to point finger, and judge each other for trivial or non existent things. Black people have been historical more discriminated but in 2020... I say the discrimination on white people due to white privilege is quite prevalent. Everyone has privileges in some way shape or form and complain on who has more isn't going to change that. Americans are so eager to be victims and tell themselves that they don't succeed because of outside sources like racism or sexism...

    one of the most damaging things to stop racism is those What would you do and "Social Experiment" shows. i's good that people speak up, but most of the time the hostile and overly aggressive and over the top reaction of the supposed bad guys makes people think if they say something they will get murdered or some shit. Reality is NEVER like that. Racist will always run away from a fight or when someone on their side supposedly speaks out against them.
