Immigration and Racism
Been talking to a raging prog about the historical and systemic racism of the Caucasian countries and particularly the US ....I have pretty much shut her down with migration maps. Why would people of color migrate to these "racist" countries and not stay within the borders of counties more Hospitable to their race.

As you can note from the map, the vast majority of countries with net increases are majority Caucasian.(and this has held true since the 1950's or so)

Migration patterns since 1950


The answer is simple US...European countries ....Australia are the least racist and most culturally accommodating countries on earth.....Institutional Racism is a myth in this country

It's because Europeans have founded the greatest countries.

Nice try.

ETA: That is like saying the slave owners were not racist because they let the slaves live on the plantation.

re: Immigration and Racism
More black Africans have voluntarily immigrated to the US then ever came through slavery . American people ( and the Western democracies in general) are the most fundamentally decent and least racist people in the history of planet Earth . There is nowhere better to be black on Planet Earth that the US ( and the western democracies).

He think he is qualified to speak on racism and immigration, but doesn't even know that Europe is not a country.

I guess this means you cannot provide your example?

How far am I allowed to go back because we can start with slavery, but I am sure you are going to claim you are talking about today.

So you have no response to the fact that slavery here in this country was not a form of institutional racism? Was or was slavery not a form of institutional racism?

Why don't you work on developing a sound argument as to why institutional racism does not exist? Because you have yet to defend your op.
