African Americans are second class citizens

Mary Ann Costanzo,

Most of us will not admit that we are biased against black, African Americans. We are not intelligent enough to understand that most of our racism is due to ignorance and fear of our society, government, and culture. Instead of targeting the real sources of our problems (government, corporations, extremist groups) in this great United States of America, we attack those who we believe cannot harm us. In other words, we abuse those who we perceive to be weaker than us: blacks, women, children, elderly. We have severe psychological problems in this country. Alowwing cops to carry guns without extreme psychological testing and without police supervisors who are dedicated to “protecting and serving” we the people (instead of the political structure and the corporations) is a real problem.
