Trayvon had the tight. Auhmed had the right. Geokrge Floyd had the tight. MLK had the right. Emmet Till had the tight. They're all dead. That's the country's problem. Christian Cooper had the tight to defend himself from a dog that should have been on a leash and his owner wouldn't leash him. And hyou call Cooper a thug. Racism is the country's problem.
Racism is just part of the country's and the world's problems. Racism is just one way to scapegoat and destroy/waste people and resources in the effort to achieve power over politics and economics.
When the Salem Witch Trials happened before the US constitution was ever written, it happened because there was a power vacuum during a period between British monarchs in a far away colony where people figured out they could use hysteria and accusations to criminalize and destroy other people, who would then lose their property.
The Salem Witch trials happened during a time of political and economic insecurity, and the hysterical drama that welled up like a cauldron consumed many lives while people took advantage of the situation before and after the madness for private gain.
Racial/ethnic scapegoating is not just used in the US to provoke hysteria and destruction in response to economic disgruntlement. Many wars and genocide-like collective witch-hunts emerge when people stew on their economic dissatisfaction until they decide to pin the blame on an entire ethnic/religious/political group and then systematically persecute them until they either die or work to give the persecutors the economic support they want and expect.
In this sense, racism is socialism because what goal does persecution ever have besides bullying people into economic submission in one way or another? People are satisfied once they get what they want economically, and so the bullying stops until they start getting bored again and want new toys to play with. If you give them credit cars to buy the toys themselves, they want the credit line to stay open and if you don't give them a steady supply of employment or other income opportunities to pay off their debts, they start getting aggressive about that.
The bottom line is that these destructive riots only began as legitimate protests, but they became violent and criminal because of all the people who lack the moral self-control to protest politically without allowing their greed, envy, and other feelings of economic-disgruntleement turn a legitimate peaceful protest into an opportunity to destroy and/or steal property.
When you are angry for other (economic/political) reasons, it gives you an excuse when there are injustices to protests; but that is no excuse for failing to separate the politics of protest from the exercise of violence against property and people for the sake of economic/political vengeance.
