With racism, it is no doubt for this kind of nation to work properly. Overcoming racism has always been a major problem to solve. Civil Rights movement was one of the great examples. But, many people still believe that racism does exist and influence the daily life of people. Incidents based on racism can be heard quite often.
Or even more strikingly, nearly half of all hate crimes committed in America have to do with race.(FBI, 2016). As we can see, although there is no obviously racism like massacre happens nowadays, the racial discrimination phenomena is like a dirty mud which has split to many tiny pieces hiding in the corner of our
It has been proven that African Americans in America have been treated with deadly force by law enforcers more regularly than White people (Schatz). All Lives Matter is ignoring this racial divide and trying to cover it up by making a blanket statement.
