America is (was) not Racist

Critical Race Theory is making us racist by calling out people by their color. If you call me a racist by my skin color with no knowledge of who I am-that is racist.

There was a day, not too long ago, that we are (were) humming along as a brilliant success in achieving immersion of peoples from all over the world—all races, cultures, philosophies. Immigrants are (were) encouraged to “melt” into the conglomerate that makes (made) the United States unique and exceptional–stronger as a community than any individual.

True, as a nation, we have inequities, injustices we must continually respond to, but all in all, we are (were) humming along striving to be the best we can be.

Until yesterday or the day before, or the day before that, someone decided we are racist and created barriers that are false. Levels of Racism are untrue. Just be me saying this I am deemed racist!

Of course we do not condone the Socially Unacceptable terms and actions that are obviously improper and rarely occur in today’s America. We oppose all forms of racism, however, many of the terms, such as striving to be “post racial” or colorblind or wanting America to be great again are worthy goals.

We, as a nation of diverse and disparate people, are not racist, and that is a fact!

Throughout the 20th and 21st centuries, the United States of America became known worldwide as the great melting pot. Immigrants came to this country with the idea in their hearts and minds that they could become Americans no matter their origins.

Symbols like the Statue of Liberty represent this idea, but nothing quite sums up what it means to be an American, as the concept of a “melting pot” of cultures, mixing, merging, and becoming stronger than each individual one. It’s a celebrated part of the American national identity and a reason why the United States is one of the most attractive countries for immigrants and refugees around the world. Golden Beacon USA
