    Blacks – African Americans

    Starting with slavery , which (in the United States) began soon after English colonists first settled Virginia in 1607, lasted until the passage of the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1865.

    Chinese Americans

    Meanwhile, the Chinese “slave-trade” and Chinese laborer problems were brewing – and the resulting hatred for the Chinese which lasted through the early 1900′s!

    Japanese Americans

    Yet again and during the same period (1880′s), Japanese slaves and laborers were brought to work on sugar plantations in Hawaii. In May 1892, the first anti-Japanese movement began. In December of 1941, the first Japanese camp was established!

    Blacks – African Americans – still.

    Between 1955 and 1968 – (imagine: 103 years after abolishing slavery, supposedly, one would think that the Blacks status in the U.S. would have reached new heights of justice and equality) American Civil Rights Movement still aimed at abolishing racial discrimination.
    I can’t help but interject that the USA invaded countries on the premise of establishing justice, democracy and abolishing racial discrimination in countries whose existence was not even one-third of the U.S.’s “age.”


    Anti-Jewish sentiment started around the time of the American Civil War, when General Ulysses S. Grant issued an order (quickly rescinded by President Abraham Lincoln) of expulsion against Jews from the portions of Tennessee, Kentucky and Mississippi under his control. Until the late 1960′s, Jews were still being discriminated against!


    And now it’s the Muslims turn…

    Laana ya ubaguzi ikishaingia ndani ya damu haitoki, kila siku utatafuta wa kumbagua, na ndicho kilichopo katika jamii ya kimarekani.
