    I can see that racism is a major blight on US society. It sort of shocks me. We have issues in the UK but nothing like I see on these forums.

    Racists in the UK can kiss goodbye to a career in the public eye but in the US they get sent to Washington.

    How do you cope with it on a personal level ? What do you tell your kids ? How do you rationalise this and keep your temper ?

    I wont respond to redneck racist trash on this thread.

    I identify as a black man, I feel I could answer your question, if you pay me.

    Tommy, racism is nowhere near as prevalent as our biased media portrays it. The media pushes this idea because it's just another swipe at President Trump. They incorrectly portray him as racist and our country being more racist because of him. Nothing could be further from the truth. It's complete BS.

    I rationalize it by educating myself. The more I learn the more I understand where it comes from. I have educated my kids to the achievements of Black civilizations in the past. I tell my kids to not waste time trying to convince whites that racism exists. I tell them the best thing they can do is succeed. I give them the real truth in knowing they have to work 10 times as hard as a white person to get the same level of reward. I must have done a good job because all of them are wildly successful.

    My first Grandson will be born just before Christmas. His Dads family is from Barbados and it really worries me when I read some of the shit on here. I wonder what kind of world we have made for him.
    Ive never had anyone use my skin colour as a reason to pick on me and I think of things like him going for an interview with someone like the shits on here.
    Thanks for that. I cant discuss it with his father who is an absolute tool, but that is another story.

    Have you ever thought that maybe these forums bring out the most polarizing posters?
    Perhaps, in the real world it's not as extreme as to what you read on a political message board.
    Perhaps, it's probably at the level of issues as you have in your country?
