It is allowed by the government?

Or is it "individuals?"

Regarding the women's autonomy over their own bodies..the last time I checked, they do. We have already done the whole "interpretation of the law" by the Supreme Court.

Give me an example. Where is it that you see the "systemic racism?" Or is it racism and hatred that exists? What, you guys are trying to ban the cave dude living somewhere in the mountains to form his or her own twisted version of the world and become hateful?

You guys think the government can stop hate? We already have laws that prevent hate from materializing.

Texas is the state where as a child we were leaving church when a group of adult men forced us to walk in the gutter. They said the kinky haired family members had "wool" not hair because we were not human. They said, "A N***** has to step into the gutter when a White Texan walks down the street." Thankfully we were surrounded by White families  leaving the church. Many Negros went missing and their bodies found dumped somewhere.

Court Rules: Texas Voter ID Still Racist

Second ruling finds GOP deliberately suppressed minority vote

APR. 11, 2017   When it comes to voter suppression, there's a big difference between deliberate and accidental. That's why it's highly damaging to the state of Texas that yesterday a federal court ruled, once again, that the state's voter ID law deliberately discriminates against minorities.

U.S. Federal District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos’s ruling is unflinching: Senate Bill 14 was designed to keep African-American and Hispanic citizens from voting, and as such clearly and purposefully violated Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act.

Texas' voter ID law was passed in 2011 along partisan lines. At the time, Democrats said that its terms would make it harder for Latino and African-American citizens to vote, as they were less likely to have the kind of state-issued photo IDs required by the new law.

Various groups sued the state, and in 2014 Ramos ruled in their favor. Importantly, Ramos found that the state had deliberately suppressed minority voters. The "why" is what’s important. Republicans have constantly claimed that they are simply securing the vote. The problem there is that the GOP has never managed to provide a statistically significant number of in-person voter fraud cases. The small number that have happened is dramatically outweighed by the number of people (an estimated 600,000) who can't vote because they lack the correct paperwork...

Texas is also the state where my grandma, who lived in Fort Worth, TX, could not attend meeting of women organizing for the right to vote because those women were afraid of and hated both Catholics and Negros. My Grandma drove to El Paso to join the struggle for women's suffrage.

Those "group of adult men" today, in this age, will be sentenced with a hate crime.

 

Again, notice. Is it this day in age? We are living here in the present, and not during the days where the British flag was flying in Washington D.C or when Jim Crow were practiced.

Dead is dead. Better to do all we can to prevent this. We need to continue getting better and speaking out against hate. This was not "history" This was my life. I was nine years old at the time.

There is no reason to hate our fellow Americans. We need to be kind to each other and try to understand our law abiding citizens.

Right-wing killings eclipsed all other extremist-related murders in 2018. The numbers don’t lie.

You make it sound like

 

It's only real to those who read and comprehend the history and details of human rights in the USA. It's not real to millions of people who prefer a white washed version of things like the Trail of Tears or the Tulsa terror.

Tulsa Race Massacre

The best way to insure that a horrible belief system will survive is to pretend that it's already dead.

Again, these are "hate groups." 

Individuals who have just hatred in their minds that gathered together, falling prey to spread hatred.

They exist everywhere. In Japan as well.

However, the "government" does not practice "systemic racism."

Your logic makes sense?

"In the early days of men, all sorts of evil existed..thus, ergo, the descendants are all guilty of that crime."

 

Just can't comprehend such nonsense.

You are mistaken. The US government has practiced racism and misogyny.

Sometimes people stop dismissing hate as nonsense and try to comprehend.

In your opinion. Of course, your opinion does not want to recognize the racism that has been baked in to state and federal government.

Again, proof?

Since you are claiming it, wouldn't it be prudent to support your argument with evidence? That the government of the United States of America, TODAY, has a systemic racism that is in place against minorities in this nation?
