    I notice Americans speak very low of black people and generally lack respect for the culture, why are african americans so respected in European countries yet scorned in the states?

    I once went to a party where there were a bunch of black, whites and Indians.

    Indians got along fine with both blacks and whites. What surprised me was how much blacks hate whites, they were badmouthing them every second they were there accusing them of being a bunch of racists when all the white folks were busy grinding each other.

    So racist that we elected a black President? So racist that a black woman is the most successful personality in show business?

    I would argue that while we have room for improvement, the modern United States is, as a whole, the least racist culture in human history.

    Have you guys been watching the EuroCup?

    I can tell you that our major sporting events don't need ton constantly broadcast, in our stadiums, ads and signs requesting the viewers to "not be racist." "Respect!" they are calling it

    You want to see Racism? Go to Northern or Eastern Europe. Prepare to be amazed.

    The very fact that we rigorously expose and decry every instance of racism we can find proves what our attitude is toward it. Unfortunately the publicity that necessarily gives every instance of racism might understandably skew a foreigner's perception of us.

    Europeans sweep their racism under the rug where it festers unseen. We exterminate ours.

    Apparently we've elevated the "token Negro" to a whole new level, previously unheard of in this country...

    BBC released a video right before EURO 2012 showing eastern Europeans beating some Indians who came to watch a game. The irony was those Indians got beaten by the fans of the same team they were supporting.
