"America is best described by one word, freedom." --- Dwight D. Eisenhower --- Oh my dear Dwight, not according to the Native Indians, the original owners of the American continent; not according to the Black Africans captured in Africa and transported to be the slaves in America. Even to Filipinos conquered by Americans away from the Spaniards more than a century ago - the word "freedom" is nothing but a "bullshit" word.--- Poch Suzara

Racism per se is bad, there is no justification about it, to argue that many ethnic groups practiced it is not rational and definitely a fallacy, i.e., argumentum ad populum.
White America has suffered from racism since after the time of Christopher Columbus arrival in America, when African in thousands forcibly captured like animals from their native land brought to America and sold as slaves. White America is guilty of genocide in the almost complete annihilation of millions native American Indians. White America used the atomic bomb on yellow Japanese when they bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki which they did not use against White Germany in WW-2. And the recent Vietnam war, when these brown Vietnamese the poorest people in the world, fighting for freedom, oppressed by the most powerful country in the world which is White America. Yes, Racism is White America's greatest Disease.--- Gil C. Fernandez
