America's Melanin Intolerance Aimed at Migrants "They Sold Us Lies!"

However, studies show that support for interracial marriages is stronger than in the past, especially among the Millennial and Gen Z generations. Among 18- to 33 -year-olds, about 87 percent accept interracial marriages, according to a Pew study published in February.

The most recent data from Afrobarometer shows that Africans with positive attitudes toward China are also more likely to view the United States positively. That is until they visit either country, Overall, Africans hold a generally positive view of US and China until they get a taste of their xenophobia and racism first hand! Even illegal migrants are separated by skin color for benefits, While black legal migrants sleep on the streets!


"Migration has recently attracted attention as both an important contributor to climate change through its greenhouse gas emissions, and as a factor in the global transportation industry that is potentially at high risk given predicted changes in the global climate." (Gössling,2002) The USA gets upwards of Sixty-five thousand illegal migrants arrive each month! Research estimates more than 216 million people could migrate to the USA as a result of climate change alone by 2050. Permanently changing the culture for good. Recent interracial marriage trends are heavily influenced by the Hart-Celler Act of 1965, which opened immigration to more Asian and Hispanic populations. Subsequently, as scholar Hsin-Yi Cindy Liu observed, interracial marriage became a sign of integration into mainstream US society. Data from the 2020 census shows that “mixed race” is the fastest growing category under racial identity, and according to the Pew Research Center, about 19% of new marriages are interracial couples. That number is projected to rise to 25% by 2030!


Younger adults in the U.S. have consistently been more likely than their older peers to approve of marriages between Black people and White people. But these generational differences have shrunk, as older adults are now nearly as supportive of interracial marriages as younger adults are. So racism isn't being pushed by the average person but by a system and a few aging and desperately afraid malcontents who continually have tried to obstruct progress and change toward racial justice and equity under the law.


Of the seven factors the researchers identified that keep Americans from prosperity and growth, perhaps the most insidious is passivism or passive racism, which includes an apathy toward systems of racial advantage or denial that those systems even exist. Ironically those systems cost the taxpayer thousands annually to keep in place. It denies them free healthcare, it denies them equitable and fair salaries, it denies them affordable higher education, it denies them access to low cost food and energy, it denies them adequate and competent policing and is the major causal factor behind crime rates which have been steadily declining in black communities nationally for 15 years and steadily rising for the same term in predominantly white communities!


Michael Rizzo, a postdoctoral fellow at New York University and the Beyond Conflict Innovation Lab, writes “just as citizens of capitalistic societies reinforce capitalism, whether they identify as capitalist or not, and whether they want to or not, citizens of racist societies reinforce racism, whether they identify as racist or not, and whether they want to or not.”
