An Other’s Viewpoint
Sometimes it good to get an outsider’s view of an issue. In this case the outsider is a Korean immigrant and the issue is what is euphemistically labeled “race relations” in America.
The greater majority will always dominate the current concerns of society. Blacks and whites have dominated American culture and history since it was founded and they still consider themselves the most important races here. The reason why there will never be racial unity is because there can never be enough â€œgenerationsâ€ to gap the feelings of hate a culture that was formerly slaves will feel for the race that was formerly their master. Until some outside force comes that is powerful enough to force us all to unite and see past our past there can never be an end to racism. Since Blacks and Whites have dominated this countryâ€™s culture, as I previously stated, their racial feud dominates this culture. It is this culture.

“Racism in America â€“ The ‘Others'”
By and large I believe Mr. Cushman has the right of things, which is often the case when a person only tangentially involved in an issue speaks his or her mind about it.
“Race” in America is Black and White, with the others being largely ignored and irrelevant except when certain, specific issues are raised, e.g., Hispanics and Illegal Immigration.
I believe that Mr. Cusham is also likely and sadly correct in believing that there will never be an end to the Race Question because, insofar as the “Black Community” is concerned there can never be enough â€œgenerationsâ€ to gap the feelings of hate they feel towards Whites and the nation and culture they built in America. Their â€œlegacy of slaveryâ€ dogma is both too entrenched and too convenient of an excuse for their endemic and systemic failings to be cast aside.
