This paper studies racism and intermingling of racism in the United States. The paper discusses why, despite emancipation and the civil rights movements, racism persists and races do not intermingle in America. The author includes a survey of the events involved in the emancipation and integration of African-Americans into American society. The paper also surveys various types of racism around the world in history, while focusing on the plight of African-Americans and Native Americans in the United States.
From the Paper:"Racism and its impact have been felt all over the world and the innate struggles and tussles that racism involves are being felt not only in the United States of America but also across the entire world. In the United States of America, racism has been in a particularly virulent form, and this may be because of the undeniable fact that America has been built on the labor of African slaves, and also on the labor obtained by the exploitation of poor immigrants. In the year 1860, there was a Civil War that sought to demand the abolition of slavery, and this did end the cruelty of slavery. However, during and after the defeat of Post War reconstruction, both capitalists as well as plantation owners subjected 'Black People' to a sort of 'semi-slavery', and this continued until the Mass Struggles by the African-Americans that came into force during the middle of the 1950's."
