So, why do so many still claim America is a racist country? Why is any hint of racism front and center in the media ad nauseam for days? Because there is money to be made, and power to be gained. Because there are voters to be pandered to, and elections to be won. Because there is a victimology and guilt trip, and it’s about time we got over it. Anyway, I’d bet we’d be better off if the whole race issue were given less attention.
