That would be a start. If you could identify as an "American" rather than an "oppressed minority suffering inequity" then the racial problems of America would rapidly dissipate,
where do you get your dumb information from?

Sorry guy, this has never alleviated the situation for black Americans.The South has always had far more racial animosity than the North for believing this grandiose stupidity. Do you even have 1 historical example?
