And paying those who care for relatives a reasonable amount of financial support.

And I've no idea how you get over that Catch 22 situation.
The situation will never change because too many people and businesses are invested in the status quo.

I'm sure you'll disagree, but just for perspective, Google "prominent Africans in Europe", or " prominent minorities in Europe ". Then do the same replacing " Europe" with "America". The results are astronomically different.

Try it. It's an eye opener.

I'd argue we have equal or more racism here, but without the addiction to weapons. People don't die because of it, so it's not nearly the issue it is in the US.

Maybe.

This country is also obsessed with race, whether it be racists or anyone else.

Yeah, because people die from it. When your kid gets killed simply because he's black, that incites huge anger.

Again, compare how minorities fare in the US compared to Europe. Europe has a mere handful of African (or Muslim) descent who achieve much of anything (mainly sports and entertainment). In America, African Americans (and a significant number of Muslims) are plastered across the landscape of prominence. From business leaders to artists to doctors to scientists to TV personalities, actors, journalists, news anchors, to politicians. No comparison.

To me, it suggests racism isn't just an American thing. Weapons addiction is though.

Because despite frequent predictions that he will, and multiple assertions that in fact he has, in fifteen months since he entered the primaries he hasn't actually "imploded" yet.

Well, you don't realise it. You're too fixated on ideology to see it. It's like religion. Like denying evolution, even though it's a proven fact.
