Thanks for reading my post and commenting. The changes I had to make seemed epic to me! The mindset I had definitely needed to change so that I could make all the necessary shifts in my life.

Comment on American racism and your part in it by Dr. Rin Porter http://www.thingscouldbeworse.org/home/american-racism-and-your-part-in-it/#comment-3318 Tue, 30 Jan 2018 14:59:17 +0000 http://www.thingscouldbeworse.org/home/?p=1486#comment-3318 Hi Nigel,
Thanks for reading and commenting on this post. Racism is ingrained in Western culture. I don’t see it going away until progressive politicians are elected to positions of power so that they can make structural changes in the Western democracies. It helps that more women are being elected to office, since women tend to be more compassionate than men, but women alone cannot make the changes that need to be made when men hold most of the economic power. It’s up to each of us individually to make changes in our daily lives and behaviors while we work for large changes in our countries’ institutions.

Yet another amazing article! I have to admit, my eyes are really open now. You make some points pretty clear and I think that is what`s most needed when it comes to racism. Many of us don`t know to recognize it every time and this article is really helpful in our attempt to become more aware as a society. I was wondering, can you see things getting better in lets to say, next decade?

Yes, it is sad that each country tends to have one or more groups of people who are discriminated against by the majority group. Thanks for commenting.
