I'm surprised at 42%. Thought it would be higher. I am certainly one of the 42%. And yes, schools AND THE MEDIA are huge contributors to that with our so-called "leaders" in DC, particularly in the Maison Blanche, fanning the flames of hate and division. This is not going to end well.

I have to tamp down my own ill feelings about how racial division is slowly creeping in. I didn't used to feel like this, but the media and Biden are fueling the racial divide. I ask to what end are they working? Just listen to Louis Farrakhan speak of Jewish people and "old white men".

America should be a melting pot - all peoples, tribes, and nations represented here becoming - Americans! The leftist in this country are separating everyone into tribes and pitting them against each other. This is exactly what happened in Rawanda - just read Immaculee Ilibagiza‘s book, Left to Tell! The country was united - it didn‘t matter what people group you were from - they intermarried but when the government started separating them and saying one group was better than another - that eventually led to the slaughter of millions of people!.
